On this tour Paul Talling, takes you on a walking tour around Hampstead showing you the sources of three of London's best known lost rivers - the Fleet, the Tyburn & the Westbourne and reading from his book London's Lost Rivers. We visit the sites of wells, a lost pond famously painted by John Constable as well as the existing Hampstead Ponds & streams that form the sources of these rivers that began their descent in Hampstead towards the River Thames and shaping London's history.
Other miscellanous sites along the way include the former London home of the black singer, actor and pioneering civil rights activist, Paul Robeson and a former pub that was frequented by Charles Dickens, Karl Marx & Bram Stoker.
Whilst we will not be heading down into any sewers or enduring mountainous conditions you are advised to wear sensible footwear as the offroad terrain on the Heath is coarse, hilly and can be slippery when wet.

Dogs & children are welcome. The walking tour goes ahead regardless of the weather. No refunds due to inclement weather are given.
