To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Society we have published a facsimile edition of a 1927 book by GF Stringer which charts the history of Sir Hugh Myddelton’s New River to its collection point in the Amwell area at the New River Head. The book, with a lovely new cover illustration by local artist, Jean Elrington, has been generously sponsored by Thames Water. It is free to all member households. Additional copies – making excellent presents – are £10.00 with all profits going to the Society. It’s worth noting that 2013 marks the 400th anniversary of the opening of the New River, the source of which is at Amwell and Chadwell in Hertfordshire. So a double celebration over two years!
To obtain additional copies of the book ring David Sulkin on 020 7837 3444. If local, copies will be delivered by hand.
