The River Neckinger is one of the lost rivers of London. It now runs underground, from the Imperial War Museum to the Thames; and divides Shad Thames in the West and the area that was known as Jacobs Island in the East. People think that the river got its name from the words “Devil’s Neckcloth” – another way of talking about the hangman’s noose – the rope used to hang people until they died. Until the 18th century Thames pirates had their heads chopped off at Neckinger Wharf.
