River Peck with Tom Bolton
Sat 6 Sept , 11am – 2pm

Tom Bolton, author of London’s Lost Rivers: A Walker’s Guide, leads a walk along the full length of the River Peck, from Honor Oak Park to the Thames at South Dock. The lost River Peck is Peckham’s river, buried under south east London. It sweeps from One Tree Hill across Peckham Rye and the industrial backlands to the Surrey Docks. On the way it takes in parts of London few ever visit, well off any tourist trail.

River Tyburn with Tom Bolton
Sun 7 Sept, 11am – 1.30pm

Tom Bolton, author of London’s Lost Rivers: A Walker’s Guide, leads a walk tracing part of the buried River Tyburn, from Baker Street to Vauxhall Bridge. The Tyburn is one of London’s lost rivers, buried to accommodate the sprawling city and West End – but still flowing beneath the streets. This river traces and shapes the history of the West End, including the institutions of monarchy, church and department store. On this walk you will uncover layers of social history and cultural curiosity, and find out about the controversies along its route.
