Now available in a new expanded edition, this collection of extraordinary images from beneath London’s streets will fascinate anyone interested in what lies under the surface of one of the world’s greatest cities.
Peel back the layers under a London street and you’ll discover a haunting, dreamlike world of handlaid brick sewers, forgotten tube stations, World War II evacuation shelters, secret government bunkers, and tunnel boring machines laying new sewer, communication, and transport grids. Bradley L. Garrett has worked with explorers of subterranean London to collect an astonishing array of images documenting forbidden infiltrations into the secret bowels of the city. This book takes readers through progressively deeper levels of London’s historical and contemporary architecture below the streets. Beautifully designed to allow for detailed viewing and featuring bespoke illustrations by artist Stephen Walter, Subterranean London reveals the locations few dare to go, and even fewer succeed in accessing.
