I'd be up for it!

Up the FatBerg! Exit via the gift shop.

Who doesn’t like a bit of Urbex?

Looks interesting.

Your lost rivers aren't as good as ours, but;

It surfaces once or twice but you can trace it from its source. The river valley is especially obvious between the Cathedral and Necropolis. It's this river, not the Clyde, that St Mungo settled beside.

I'm not sure if they'd be green walks. Brown, possibly...

They used to do this in Brighton every year, might still do, for a limited time. Very popular it was, you had to book early.

The objects that we find, down below

Help to entertain the mind, down below

There are watches we can't wind

Wrapped up in bacon rind

And that isn't all you find, down below.

Nostalgia for someone else's past.

nemo75 - 04 May 2021 15:37:01 (#12 of 25)

Nostalgia for something someone passed.

Dubris - 04 May 2021 15:44:41 (#13 of 25)

La nostalgie de la poo.

solomongursky - 04 May 2021 16:01:55 (#14 of 25)

Remembrance of Things Passed.

Pubs not covid safe, wading through the faeces and urine of millions, covid safe?

Electro2 - 04 May 2021 16:09:41 (#16 of 25)

Plenty of masks down there…

Have you read the article? The thread title is misleading.

The thread title is misleading

In a bossab thread? I'm shocked.

Now the Ramblers walking charity is calling for a network of new green walking routes tracing the paths of some of London’s “forgotten” waterways. It wants the mayor to back plans for signage and maps to guide walkers around these historic subterranean routes.

Perfectly clear: subterranean rambling.

#17 My mistake. London's rivers are now far from sewers Bossab, they are pretty clean these days and often chalk fed, crystal clear and full of wildlife. In theory this is a great idea. The only thing that's annoying is they are anglers little secret, Ibwouldn't want them invaded by lockdown labradoodles.
