Walking the Hidden River Effra

10am-4.30pm – it is also possible to join for just half a day
Walking the Hidden River Effra - TICKETED and essential to BOOK HERE - places are limited
Thousands of people cross the River Effra every day, but few of them realise it. Although it is mostly hidden underground today, traces remain in street names - and muddy patches of ground. Jenni Bowley will be following its course from the springs of Upper Norwood to the Thames at Vauxhall.
Join her for a day of walking and history, finding traces of the Effra in street names and stink pipes and hearing the stories of those who have lived on its banks. This is a rare chance to walk from one end of a river to the other in a day.
The whole walk is about nine miles, but if you can't spare the time why not join the walk for half a day?
Meeting place: Information on booking form
