Haringey's Hidden Streams Revealed

£12.99

Product description

Very good condition with little to no wear. Internally clean and bright. Binding strong.

Several natural streams, such as the Moselle, rise in what is now the London Borough of Haringey and once flowed in the open across it, mostly eastwards towards the River Lea. By the mid-19th century, as a result of increasing urban development, these streams began to disappear underground into culverts and were lost to view.
This book describes the original routes of the streams, identifying their present day location. It is based on research carried out by the late David Harrison and the walks he conducted for the Hornsey Historical Society, following these original routes. The two authors have consolidated and extended this research through their own field work, photography and archives investigations.
The text is enhanced by almost 100 illustrations, featuring old maps, views from both past and present, and by relevant historical accounts. Fourteen local views dating from the mid-19th to early 20th century have not been previously published. This is a comprehensive and pioneering account of a natural feature now so often overlooked unless flooding or dampness draws it to our attention. It may attract some readers to follow the trails laid out by the authors.
