This Walthamstow based short walk begins at Vestry House Museum goes past St Mary’s Church and The Ancient House and takes in The Nags Head Pub. The map indicates the site of manhole covers on part of the route. Covers in the road are not included and the route assumes walking on the left hand of the road. The Rat’s Republic refers to the underneath of our city. To the sewers and cables, tunnels and Underground train system. Every day millions of people enter this underworld to travel. The world beneath our feet contains water and gas, our electricity and a proliferation of telecommunication cables.
