Trains, Drains and Remains

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 8th Sep 2020

 £5.00

This is an online video event, please check the organiser for details about how to watch.

Our virtual journey starts at Blackfriars, considering the history of the City that is largely under our feet. We discuss the development of the Tube in the City and how it relates to embanking the Thames, learn about the hidden River Fleet which feeds into the Thames and discuss modern day sewers. We then weave through the narrow streets to the site of the old Blackfriars Monastery and through the heart of the City. We view archaeological remains; where human remains were once buried; see where water conduits were installed and walk along a former river that, in later times, became a drain before clogging up completely. We will finish our Journey by London Bridge, at the site of the first deep level tube station.
