In this article is surveyed the environmental regulation of sixteenth and seventeenth-century London, describing the systems of street cleaning and maintenance which were adopted within the capital. This analysis is related to wider reflections upon the historiography of public health and urban government. In particular the material which is presented about the vitality and demanding nature of civic and neighbourly regulation of public space is shown to present major problems for the most common models of medical and public health history. Some conclusive observation are drawn out with the parallels between author’s works on urban sanitation and recent works on the environmental management of early modern forests and common lands.
