 Story of the New River
The New River was ceremonially opened on 29 September, 1613, by the Lord Mayor of London, Sir John Swinnerton, in the presence of the Lord Mayor elect, Sir Thomas Myddelton, Hugh's brother.
The course of the New River did not alter significantly during the 18th century, although the wooden "frames" at Bush Hill and Highbury were replaced by clay embankments.
However, the New River was saved by a combination of: the additional demand for water in the London Docklands; the development of the Artificial Recharge Scheme; and interest from local residents.
