On Sunday 29th September 2013 Graham Levins attended the celebrations on behalf of the Welsh Mines Preservation Trust. The day was spent visiting various celebrations along the New River, in the company of Mike Kensey from the New River Action Group.

The two highlights of the day were laying a bouquet of flowers at Sir Hugh Myddelton’s Statue on Islington Green and attending the re-enactment of the opening ceremony 400 years ago, at New River Head in Clerkenwell.
