Londonist Underground: Secret London Rivers

Continuing our series of original art and photography inspired by subterranean London.

Until today's entry, from Abi Daker, London's subterranean rivers hadn't yet featured in our Londonist Underground competition. But here they are, feeding into the Thames as they did long ago. Abi depicts the Neckinger (left, or south of the river), Walbrook (bottom right), Fleet, Tyburn and Westbourne (top left), seeping through a cityscape which includes both modern and ancient features. In real life, these rivers still exist, but now serve as sewers and rarely meet the Thames.

We’re still looking for further entries for the Londonist Underground competition. Draw, paint or photograph anything you like from the world beneath London. It could be a work of fiction and imagination, or an image based on reality…up to you. The best entries will be displayed in a real-world exhibition, which we’ll announce soon...though tomorrow is your final day for consideration for the exhibition.
