By Albert Pinching and David Dell
This book retraces the routes of Haringey’s several natural streams which once flowed in the open from the “northern heights” of Highgate and Muswell Hill but are mainly now underground.
Surviving evidence of their original routes is described in a narrative embellished by almost 100 illustrations including early prints and maps, past and present photos and historical references.
