Neither new nor a river it doesn't even exist in this part of London any longer! However you can follow its course and see remaining evidence which relates to this artifical waterway. Designed to bring fresh water to the City in Tudor times its upper reaches still supply some of London's water.

There are plenty of places for refreshments around the Angel including good value cafes in Chapel Market.


This walk is 3 miles on paths & pavements. This walk takes in some attractive stretches of landscaped park plus many other buildings of interest including old Canonbury Tower and the new Sadler's Wells. There is some overlap with the Stoke Newington walk. [Route & what to see]
