Further information

We will meet at the slipway outsdie the rowing club at 9:30am and then walk to the foreshore. The foreshore can be uneven and muddy so please bring wellingtons or sturdy walking boots. In case of inclement weather, the walk may be postponed or cancelled. Do contact us if you have any questions about the event.

The TDP leads regular guided walks on the foreshore for adults, and families with older children / teenagers. These walks focus on the history and heritage of the river including those structures and features exposed by the movement of sediment in this dynamic environment, which are monitored and archaeologically recorded by the FROG. Some surface-only artefact handling may be permitted when attending a TDP foreshore walk, but all finds must be examined by the archaeologist on site, and significant artefacts must be recorded with the Portable Antiquities Scheme. Please be aware that if you wish to regularly search the foreshore for artefacts at other times you must be in possession of a Permit to Search the Foreshore, issued by the Port of London Authority.

Thanks to funding from City Bridge Trust, our events are free for Londoners aged over 75.
