Petherton Road celebrations. South of Clissold Park the New River goes underground again, but its route has been preserved as a linear park the width of the New River, running between the two sides of the length of Petherton Road, which ends near Canonbury Station. Local residents are having an informal picnic celebration on this lovely area of grass and trees. Look out for the fishes in the trees!
