Description - London's Hidden Rivers by David Fathers
London has many rivers, but they are often hidden under centuries of development. Rivers like the Walbrook, the Fleet or the Westbourne have left their mark on the city, and still form an important part of its subterranean world. David Fathers traces the courses of London' Hidden Rivers in a series of detailed guided walks, illustrating the traces they have left and showing the ways they have shaped the city.

Author Biography - David Fathers
DAVID FATHERS originally trained as a graphic designer and now runs an internet company. However he has always had a passion for drawing, painting and maps. Nearly ten years ago he was commissioned by the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and Wakehurst Place to create their first digital visitors guides. These are still in use today. Having lived in London for over thirty years, he is slightly embarrassed to admit that he only discovered the Regent's Canal a few years ago. It was love at first sight. Despite having crossed over the canal so many times, it wasn't until he was on the towpath that he became aware of the contrasts, richness and history of the canal and its environment.
