We are very lucky here in Islington that the beautiful New River Walk is incredibly close to our London jewellery shop/workshop and offices. Opened on the 29th September 1613, it’s hard to believe it’s been there for so long. An integral part of our local landscape, it adds a lovely bit of greenery that runs through Canonbury. I have walked it with small children, fed ducks and have also fished out my friends toddler who decided to jump in head first and had to be pulled out by his feet. Luckily he was not particularly bothered by the experience especially as he was then given hot chocolate! Kids eh? I have sat on the grass with friends and shared a lovely picnic on a summers evening. There’s a very good pub nearby too.
Originally it was built to supply London with fresh water but currently it only supplies 8%. You can walk along the original route which is about 40 miles, from Hertford to the East Reservoir in Stoke Newington. Part of the water flow was diverted and goes underneath Petherton road off Newington Green road. It was built with a charter from James I and it seems amazing that we are still using it – it’s still there, bringing in fresh water for those lucky 8% (the rest of our drinking water comes from many different sources). There are numerous really interesting facts about these pretty gardens, but I could be here all day, and I’m sure you should be working… so if you want to know more get googling.
During our last visit to the New River Walk we did a little skull jewellery shoot with the fab Justine (how amazing is her tattoo). The lighting was totally gorgeous – such a lovely time of day…
Justine is wearing our gold small Skull necklace in 9ct yellow gold, Bone hoop earrings in silver and Dia de Los Muertos Para Las Mujeres Skull bracelet in silver.
