Queenhithe Ward & Foreshore Walk - 31st August 2014

Another great afternoon on the foreshore, we will be out and about again on 26th October. It is an early start (9am), but it will be worth it. Book here:

MissB in the Dock! (c) Bruno Rondinelli

This walk started life as an introduction to Queenhithe Ward and the City of London for the volunteers at South Bank Mosaics who are working on the design of a 30 metre long by 1 metre high art work celebrating Queenhithe Dock. I have teamed up with project archaeologist, Mike Webber, to offer you a chance to hear about the quayside history and its relationship to the Thames foreshore.  There will also be an opportunity to search and discover artefacts connected with the history of the area from below Hanseatic Walk to Millennium Bridge. A fascinating and absorbing tour. Duration 3 hours.

Start: Under Millennium Bridge North Side (Paul's Walk)10.30am (if you are late we will be walking East, so you can catch us up at the next stop Broken Wharf). 
Ends : Coming up from the foreshore almost where we started.

Please wear appropriate footwear for walking on the Thames beach, very wet weather wellies are good, or old trainers, walking boots. A container to carry your finds is also useful.
Children 10 and over are welcome provided they have an adult each to be responsible for them.
14 and under go free.

WARNING: there are steep steps going down and coming up from the foreshore.
A full Health & Safety brief will be given. 

Please email if you have any queries.
