The Lost River

by Polina Vezhan

Contemporary London has hidden few rivers from its visitors. And even locals often are not familiar with them, as the lost rivers lie concealed, encased in tunnels or in pipes and run silently beneath the surface of the city. These are the names of the rivers in order , west to east – Stamford Brook, the Wandle, Counter’s Creek, the Falcoln, the Westbourne, the Tyburn, the Effra, the Fleet, the Walbrook, Neckinger and the Earl’s Sluice, the Peck and Ravensbourne.
