In Search of the Lost River Sheaf 

16 Sep 2022 17:00 - 19:00

Follow the River Sheaf overground from where it disappears into mysterious culverts to its secret confluence with the Don. On the way you will hear how and why the Sheaf was lost and how we could soon get sizeable sections back, plus plenty of history and glimpses of the future. The tour concludes with an exclusive drink and look inside the yet to open Two Rivers Bar in an abandoned but totally transformed Gents Toilet on Blonk Street Bridge.
