8.     WHIFF:


The Effra river, which flowed under Herne Hill in Victorian times was eventually covered over in the 19th Century, its route now marked by a trail of tall 'stink pipes' to release nasty odours. Beware, if standing in the wrong place at the wrong time, it is possible to catch whiff of the subterranean bowels of Herne Hill - a gentle reminder of the lost river's ever desire to return in one form or other.
