Beneath the Streets of LondonBook - 2010
Nothing so fascinates Londoners as the visible or unseen life of the capital beneath their feet. Lost rivers, pipes of many kinds, sewers, crypts and catacombs, tunnels used or abandoned, ring mains, railways, secret bunkers and pneumatic tubes are all there in a sometimes complex arrangement. This book summarises what can be found and seen right up to date, including the considerable achievements of the past such as the first tunnel beneath the Thames, the world's first truly underground railway; and the first proper sewerage system installed in any city.
