April 28, 2012 Three Rivers Forced Underground



River Fleet, London

Photograph by Steve Duncan

The largest of London's lost rivers, the River Fleet flows four miles (6.4 kilometers) underground through downtown before it enters into the Thames. Here, it splits into two 12-foot-high (3.7-meter-high) brick tunnels not far from St. Paul's Cathedral.



River Westbourne, London

A number of watercourses through London were buried over the centuries, including the River Westbourne, which flowed from Hampstead through Hyde Park to Sloane Square and into the River Thames at Chelsea.

Funny, because before I opened the thread I was already drawing up a reply in my mind regarding the underground rivers in London

Fascinating pics, thanks.

I was expecting something regarding Three Rivers Stadium, and I thought "That's been gone for several years, hasn't it?".

And, it has.

If I recall, Fleet Street and the Fleet River/Ditch featured prominently in Neal Stephenson's Baroque Cycle. It looks about as filthy as was described in the books.

London's underground rivers have featured in many stories/ novels.
They're a source () of fascination for many writers.
