A Secret Life of London's Waterways

Helen Babbs

Travelling across London by canal boat, from Walthamstow Marsh to the suburbs of Uxbridge, Helen Babbs witnessed abundant wildlife, and the impact of seasonal changes and developers on the city’s landscapes. In this blend of nature writing, social observation and memoir she recalls the practical challenges of her year-long journey, as well as the unusual perspective it offered her, to create a unique portrait of the capital’s history, politics and people.
