The River Tyburn’s partially obscured history goes back thousands of years, stretching through an era when London was not even named. A boundary in reality and nomenclature, “Tyburn” has roots in an Old English term for “boundary.” This timeless river has served as a vital water resource and the birthplace of a village documented in the Domesday Book.

Despite the river’s burial underneath London’s bustling streets, its footprint is not fundamentally lost. You can reach out and touch a part of this history in the form of a small plaque nestled within a wall on Marylebone Lane. Since 1776, the River Tyburn has discreetly meandered through this plaque-embracing conduit beneath the countless feet trampling London’s streets every day.
