Kensal Green Cemetery Open Day
This year's Open Day is on Sunday, July 8th details within.

And why is it suitable for this community? Because they have a Catacomb :o) Even better, yours truly will be guiding some of the Catacomb tours. Please come along and laugh at my inept mumbling partake of my expertise.

Subterranea Britannica one-day conference
Thought this might be of interest to this community as it's London and underground, if not London Underground:

Details here.

Sub Brit has a mix of people interested in all aspects of man's use of natural or artificial underground spaces - with a slight bias towards the Cold War and (mostly disused) railway infrastructure.

Nothing on LU at this year's conference but there is a talk on the Berlin U-Bahn.

This could be of interest for people in this community:

Subterranean London
Christian Wolmar

Known by its logo, defined by lines on a map, the London Underground was such an audacious creation that no other city tried to copy it for forty years. Leading transport critic and author of Subterranean Railway: A Social History of the Tube (2004), Christian Wolmar talks through the history of this feat of imagination and construction.

In collaboration with architects AEM, photographer Alan Williams researched and documented some of the unique hidden spaces beneath the London’s pavements including the Westminster camera control; the catacombs at Kensal Green Cemetery; the shoe lasts for clients at John Lobb, Bootmakers; the vaults of the British Library and the cable runs into the City of London. Presenting his images, Williams explains how he discovered and gained access to these extraordinary places. .
