Regent's Canal Old Wall

This original wall, which was built when the canal was built, is one of the few areas where the original wall is still standing. In many other areas, the wall has been reconstructed or taken away to be turned into gardens or other public areas.
Did you know?
Many years ago, before hygiene was taken seriously, this wall was built to keep trespassers off of the canal. Despite the canal being filled with industrial waste, sewage, and rat urine, children would continue to swim in here despite the health implications.
