I give talks and lectures on London history, lost London rivers, the vanished city and on walking. I have talked at Salon for the City, UCL Urban Lab, Open East, the Croydon Natural History and Scientific Society among others, and have given a Royal Geographical Society Monday Night lecture.

Do get in touch if you would like to arrange a talk.
