7m OD in the south-east (Drummond-Murray 1988). This west-east slope, together with the evidence for later drainage systems, suggests the existence of a nearby stream, possibly the one located at 15-35 Coptball Avenue. 2m below street level and at 7 Copthall Avenue (Site 25) (Staff of Guildhall Museum 1965,135-6). Adjoining the latter site, at 20-8 Moorgate (Site 20) (Cottrill 1936), the ground was observed sloping rapidly down to the east. As with the channels at 55-61 Moorgate, these deposits may have been associated with later drainage activity, but it also seems likely that the incline of the strata and the deposits were related to the length of a stream found at 15-35 Copthall Avenue, or in the case of 30 Moorgate and even of Nos 55-61, to a branch of the stream.
Reader’s information from 4-6 and 10-12 24 Fig 26 The course of the upper Walbrook as conjectured on the Geological Survey of 1936 Fig 27 The course of the upper Walbrook, after Merrifield (1965) Copthall Avenue indicates a north-south aligned stream. This could have been part of the main Walbrook (Stream 3) as suggested by RCHM (1928) and Merrifield (1965, map) (Figs 25, 27) but could equally have been part of a tributary with a more direct southerly route. It is also possible that it was connected with the western tributary (Stream 1): the southward slope of the terrace gravels at the south end of LaneFox’s site (Site 28) may have marked the north bank of a stream which would then, presumably, have meandered southwards again.
At the same time the depressions formed by the streams began to be filled in and a network of ditches provided for the displaced drainage. Two north-east to south-west aligned roads were constructed, forming main routes through the valley, and gravelled and timber paths provided access within the area itself. The initial results of attempting to re-organise the natural drainage system were not successful and it is suggested that this, rather than a rise in the level of the Thames (Merrifield 1983, 146) caused the silting and flooding of the Walbrook.
