The story of women's labour and activism from 1860-1970 set in the world of laundries and the bath house of Notting Dale, North Kensington.
The narrative begins with Kathleen Doherty, an Irish migrant, who lives next to Counters Creek and is washing the clothes of the rich folk from Notting Hill. And it ends with Grace and Jackie, West-Indian sisters, in a basement flat on Testerton Street in 1969, where the houses are condemned for demotion, prior to the building of Lancaster West Estate. Counters Creek, the ancient stream, now long buried under the streets, bubbles to the surface in the dramatic finale.
