An explanation text for year 4 about the Victorian invention of London’s sewerage system by Joseph Bazalgette. He designed a network of wide brick-walled sewers that collected dirty water from street sewers and underground rivers, carrying it further down the Thames so it could be washed out to sea. The low-level sewers were housed inside newly built embankments. They also cleaned up the riverbanks and changed the way London looked forever.
