New River Head
In 1609 a scheme to bring much needed water into London from wells in Hertfordshire was designed by a Mr Hugh Myddleton. His plan was to end his New River just below the summit of Islington Hill, where an old duck pond was enlarged to become a reservoir, to be known as New River Head.
