River Fleet

Plaque Design

After the success of the River Effra floor plaques being installed throughout the London borough of Lambeth; north of the River, Camden looked to do something similar for their hidden river - RIver Fleet.

They got in touch with Atelier Works and asked us to tell the story of the Fleet in relation to various locations.

The first plaque - set in the foot path in Goldington Crescent Gardens - explains that the area was often flooded before the river was diverted underground.

Cast in iron, the story is distorted to give the idea of it being submerged underwater.
