My name is Anna Chrystal and I am the Education and Outreach Officer at the London Museum of Water & Steam. The London Museum of Water and Steam, formerly Kew Bridge Steam Museum, explores the story of London’s water supply as the vital lifeblood of our city. We have the world’s largest collection of Cornish cycle steam engines including the largest in the world still in steam on its original site.

Between 1832 and 1866 over 35,000 people mysteriously died across London. The best medical minds of the time couldn't fathom why & people where beginning to drop like flies. Was it that awful stench in the air or something far more deadly?

Use this informative and visual sheet as an aid to understanding the 'Great Stink', cholera and life in Victorian London. Suitable for KS2+.
