Boris to bring River Brent back to the surface

Mayor Johnson has said he wants to look at bringing ‘London’s lost rivers’ back to the surface – including the river Brent in Wembley.

Advisers to the Mayor are looking to create more open spaces and water features by uncovering parts of the tributaries flowing into the Thames.

Some ideas are perhaps more likely to become reality than others – for example, Will Alsop, the architect drafted in to help alter Croydon’s skyline, has centred his vision for the area on bringing the Wandle back to the surface. Other aquatic ideas include turning Fleet Street, where the river Fleet once ran, into a Venetian-style waterway.
