London Under – Peter Ackroyd

Peter Ackroyd has a passion for London that has now gone underground.  His new book, London Under, explores the hidden city that runs beneath our metropolis.

I can’t wait to read this book – London (not just its cemeteries) is a constant source of intrigue and fascination for me.  Not only does this deal with ‘hidden’ London but it  also discusses the hydraulic device that lowered bodies into the famous catacombs of Kensal Green Cemetery.  These catacombs are definitely worth a visit – check tour details here for times.
