Flood Warning!

It’s been decidedly wet over the last few days and being outside for most of them has left me feeling rather damp on my return home. So to continue this moist motif I came across a nice little bit of London Folklore which pre-dates the Thames Barrier by a hundred years.

Its connected to the lions on the side of Victoria Embankment The rhyme goes “When the lions drink, London will sink. When it’s up to our manes, we’ll go down the drains”
