Flickr: Female Urban Explorers | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it

Urban Explorers tend to be men...which is no bad thing for us girl explorers ;) but being such a rare breed, it's always nice to meet other girls interested in UE. This group is a place for UE girls to get together to talk about our explores and experiences and a place to share our images. Let's celebrate the fact that we are female Urban Explorers....and proud of it!

The Fleet – London’s Underground River ~ Kuriositas

The Fleet – London’s Underground River ~ Kuriositas | Modern Ruins | Scoop.it

The story of the Fleet is one of almost inevitable but inexorable decline. Over the period of just a few hundred years it went from a river to a brook. From there, despite a brief renaissance as a canal it became a ditch and ultimately was consigned to the depths as a drain. Human intervention has consigned the river to its labyrinthine underground tomb. Yet take a visit to the ponds of Hampstead and you can still see it, at its source, perhaps something akin to how it looked before we arrived.
