Mouth of the River Walbrook



Mouth of the River Walbrook

The end of the legendary lost London river The Walbrook.

Location: Walbrook Wharf, Southwark Bridge Road, Dowgate

Description: This is what remains of the end of the famous subterranean river The Walbrook. This flat concrete trough outlet across the pebbly beach by the barges, is the outlet of the Walbrook's replacement sewer.

It was once a more dignified tributary to the Thames, originally flowing through the heart of the City of London. Before sanitary planning in London, as the City grew it became filthier. Thus, it was famously paved over in the 1460s.

Recent archaeology has found hoes and ploughshares, chisels and saws, scalpels and spatulas, the heads of forgotten gods and a collection of 48 human skulls tell the earliest of all London tales.

The ancient and spectacular Roman Temple of Mithras was discovered by it's banks in 1953.
