• WHILE agreeing with Geoffrey Twist’s sensible remarks on water conservation and the New River, might I point out that it was Hugh Myddelton (not John) who first brought fresh water to London (River runs through it, April 13).
He would, I think, be horrified at the wastage caused by water leaks and poor maintenance. And if he were to glance at the square named after him, he would appreciate seeing the long-standing hoarding hiding the plaque commemorating his work.
