Event description
Discover the archaeology of this fascinating area of London.

About this event

Discover the archaeology of the Putney foreshore beside Putney Church where the victorious army of parliament discussed the remaking of Britain at the end of the Civil War. Hear about the 18th century Putney Bridge and see Anglo-Saxon and prehistoric remains (tide permitting). Guided by one of our expert archaeologists, you'll discover the hidden history of this extraordinary part of London. 

The walk will begin at 8:30am, meet at the top of the ramp in front of the Boathouse Pub on Brewhouse Lane, SW15 2JX.

Our guided foreshore walks help support our work to monitor and record the vulnerable archaeology on the Thames foreshore.

Further information

Places are limited so booking is essential! The foreshore surface can be uneven and muddy – please wear sturdy footwear; boots or wellies are recommended open toed sandals are not. In case of inclement weather, the walks may be postponed or cancelled.

The TDP leads regular guided walks on the foreshore for older people, adults, and families with older children and 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.

Artefacts on the foreshore

The Thames Discovery Programme leads regular guided walks on the foreshore for adults, and families with older children and 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 finds 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.
