About

History

Walbrook was a fresh water source that fed the Roman City of London, and perhaps the first of London’s “Lost Rivers” to be buried beneath the streets and buildings of the expanding metropolis.

Context

The ING Media team has been walking the Walbrook as way of introducing new team members to the City of London’s built environment since discovering a possible branch of the stream in a nearby backstreet.
