About this book


When the first edition of Hidden Beneath Our Feet was published in 1997 by Leeds City Council, it sold out within a matter of weeks.


With sewerage issues, including ownership of the water companies and discharge of sewage overflows into watercourses, now the subject of frequent debate, it seems like an appropriate moment to publish this considerably expanded and updated edition.


Aware that the history of our sewerage inheritance is hidden even more effectively than the sewers themselves, the author has tried to bring to light some of its milestones.


The new edition not only brings the story of sewerage up to date: It also introduces comprehensive source references and adds a fascinating Appendix on the history of sewage overflow practice and legislation.
