There is a sunny break in the days of great and rain which is fortunate. Today I meet with Graham, Ray and Nicolas and we will walk the course of the river Tyburn – one of London’s lost rivers. It was in reality no more than a brook but became a sewer in the 19th century and was then covered over with streets and houses. We shall, however, walk as close as we can to the course of the river which will be in conduits below us.
Ray talks non-stop. But about the houses and the famous people that have lived there. And occasionally whines every so often about “taking a bus ” for the rest of the journey. But he manages the walk which is about 5½ miles which is very good.
Outside the Tavistock Clinic, where I trained as a psychotherapeutic counsellor. This is near the source of the Tyburn.
Additionally, there is the anarchist idea of the Tyburn angling society.
