Discover the rich history of the Thames foreshore at the very heart of the Ctiy. From the Roman period to the present day the Thames is the City has been a thriving trade hub and this walk will explain how this has impacted on the river and it's archaeology.
We will be meeting at Trig Lane Stairs at 11:30am.
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 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.
Please note the foreshore surface at this site is particularly uneven and may be slippery and muddy so please wear boots or wellies.
