Event Description

Join Maggie Howell, a London Canal Museum volunteer, as she tells us about the importance of the River Lea over time. Often referred to as London’s second river, the Lea rivals only old Father Thames in terms of its length and the way it meanders through many of the boroughs of North and East London.
Maggie will look at how the activity along the River Lea has changed and evolved, as well as the range of uses made of the water along its route - from the different mills once employed in industry, and the transport used to navigate the watercourse in moving goods and people.

This talk highlights the Canal Museum's new exhibition about London's Living Waterways, which features the River Lea.

Doors open at 7pm. Refreshments available.
Kindly supported by the Friends of Bruce Castle.
