"When RPS London decided to do a book on the Waterways of SW London, it was the excuse I needed to explore and photograph the Hogsmill River..

The book required only 7 pictures, which are in the information pack attached, but over a few months I went on to recce most of the river.

Thje permissions I got from the Council eventually reached the Countryside Management people, who asked to share all of the work and got me to cover some missed bits to create an archive.

The river is very historical, having driven various mills, including gunpowder in several places in its heyday"

See Mike's pictures and more of the story on the downloadable attachedment to this entry.
