The New River Islington N1
The New River Islington N1
This is the New River in Islington. The linear park along its banks was closed and the river rather dry due to repair work on the pumps on the day the picture was taken. The New River is a welcome strip of green in an otherwise totally built up area. The "New" river is in fact an aqueduct constructed for 40 miles along the 100 ft contour from the River Lea. It brought fresh water to London for the first time in 1613. The part of the river shown here is now purely ornamental.
