The New River is actually a water supply aqueduct, completed in 1613, to bring drinking water from Hertfordshire to North London.
Since 1992, Thames Water has worked with local people and partners to create a 45 km [28 mile] long-distance footpath that follows the course of the New River, linking the inner city to the open countryside. The route follows, wherever possible, the historic water channel, as well as some straightened and piped sections between the New River`s starting point near Hertford to its original end in Islington. The route is waymarked throughout its length and all signs display the Path logo.
Further information on the New River Path can be found in this Thames Water produced leaflet here.
