This new edition of The Lost Rivers of London has been revised and much extended.

Rivers flow beneath the streets of London. Over the centuries these once rural streams, north and south of the Thames, such as the Fleet, the Tyburn and the Effra, have been covered over and eventually integrated with the drainage and sewer systems.

This book is the authoritative work on the subject, tells you where they are in colour maps, accompanied by numerous illustrations.
