This series is a  record of a walk up 'the New River' in North London. 

Although described as a river, it is actually an aqueduct constructed at the start of the 17th century to supply North London with clean drinking water. It's construction was only made possible by by a majority investment and charter from King James I, who eventually created a charter clause that gave the water supply company a monopoly over supplying Westminster and North London.


Along the 'New River', I have documented the signs of inhabitants along the life line, who despite difficult living conditions, strive to survive.
