Blue Ribbon Network

Blue Ribbon Network

7.70     The Blue Ribbon Network (BRN) is London’s strategic network of waterspaces (see Map 7.5) and covers the River Thames, canals, tributary rivers, lakes, reservoirs and docks alongside smaller waterbodies. The network is of cross cutting and strategic importance for London; every London borough contains some element of the network – 17 border the Thames and 15 contain canals. The nature of waterbodies is that there are linked, natural or semi natural systems, therefore the concept of the network is of vital importance.
