Settlements have risen by rivers from earliest times.  In 50 AD, the Romans built Londinium near Walbrook, where the Thames was still tidal.  By the 18th c, their wharves & 1st London Bridge enabled trade within Britain & around the globe, & made London the world’s busiest port.  The river’s economic, leisure & inspiration benefits still flow on 2,000 years later
