    I visited this astonishing Victorian brick tunnels with adders and Gaj. And had an amazing time, thank you guys :) christened my new waders, saw beautiful and breathtaking brick structure, tried hard not to slip and splash :)...watched some scared rats, even cute little baby ones ..

    Here is a bit of history - already covered by adders:)
    River Fleet is one of London's lost rivers, which once flowed from Hampstead to Blackfriars. Although long bricked over (as part of Joseph Bazalgette’s monumental tunnelling programme during the 1860s and 1870s), the Fleet, like many of London’s old rivers, still flows underground through a series of pipes and culverts. The Fleet River today is a huge underworld cavern of Victorian brickwork and London history. Though it has been changed and redirected, the river has never stopped running, rushing unseen, just beneath the sidewalks of London.(borrowed)

    Some pics here (still learning)
