Better sewers than Babbage. Yes, it is true.

“The River Tyburn, another lost river of London. The Tyburn originally
arose from two smaller tributaries in the hills of Hampstead, flowing
down through Marylebone, Mayfair and Picadilly. From here things get
slightly regal as it flows underneath Buckingham Palace and onwards
towards its confluence with the Thames. Now known as the King’s
Scholars’ Pond Sewer, it is completely buried and incorporated into the
london sewer network.”

    Oh yes!  Brick arches amaze me.  I saw something on a smaller scale in Fort Pickens in Florida.
