This is a talk about two centuries of hoaxes, crime, embezzlement, fraud, fights, secrets, espionage, weapons, wartime and much more – fictional and real all played out in and around the murky waters of the Regent’s Canal. Not for the faint hearted, there will even be references to infringements of the Town & Country Planning Control of Advertisement Regulations (1969). It is not about fluffy swans and heritage and environment in the usual way. Lester promises to plunge the inky black waters and reveal all.
Lester Hillman, a previous speaker, is an international award winning planner and former Visiting Professor in Transport at London Metropolitan University. He has been involved in waterways including the Regent’s Canal for five decades working in planning, heritage, engineering and infrastructure liaison, leisure, education and tourism.
