Thames Foreshore Walk


The Thames Discovery Programme, based at the Museum of London, monitors the tidal zone of the River Thames in Greater London for new archaeological features and has funding from the City Bridge Trust for work with older Londoners. A Community Archaeologist is available to lead guided walks at low tide along the foreshore to discover industrial and archaeological features.
 
A walk for the Crouch End and District U3A has been arranged for low tide starting at Bankside on Thursday 27th February 2020.
 
Bankside is one of the easiest access points to the foreshore with gently sloping steps but as the walk is on the foreshore it is essential that everyone wears suitable stout footwear.
 
We will need to assemble at the meeting point for the walk by 9.45 a.m, at the top of the steps, a little way East (downstream) of the Founders Arms pub (SE1 9JH). close to the southern entrance to Blackfriars train station. It is also easy to get there from Bank/Monument or Mansion House underground stations across the Millennium Bridge.
 
Anyone wishing to join this walk should contact John Hinshelwood to book a place by telephone – 07531866714 or by email – johnhinshelwood@btinternet.com.
 
Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis and if too many people apply a waiting list will be started for a repeat walk in May 2020.
