Stephen Myers has had a lifelong interest in London’s lost rivers.
He practised as a consulting engineer in the field of water and wastewater engineering for more than 50 years. He has advised governments in more than 70 countries on their water management and supply strategies and lived a total of 18 years in Italy, Greece, Portugal, Hong Kong and Turkey.
He has recently successfully completed a doctorate at the University of Reading in archaeology on “The Walbrook and Roman London”, the Walbrook being the City of London’s lost river.
This talk will be on another of London’s lost rivers – the Fleet – with local Highgate and Hampstead interest, including a practical project for revival of the river.
This replaces the talk by Rowan Moore on London’s Changing Skyline which has been cancelled
