Free riverside stroll looking at the archaeology of the Thames foreshore from the footpath aimed at Londoners with limited mobility and/or aged 65+

Join one of our professional archaeologists to find out about the archaeology of the Burrell’s Wharf from the Thames footpath. See the launch site of the largest ship of the 19th century and the damage done by a V1 flying bomb. The walk route is step free along the whole route. Total walk length is about two fifths (0.4) of a mile or about 700 yards.

This walk is funded by the City Bridge Trust for Londoners aged over 65. Younger Londoners with mobility difficulties are also welcome. If you’re accompanying someone over 65 or someone with mobility difficulties you’re very welcome.

Please note: this event does not take place on the foreshore itself but on the footpath overlooking it.

The meeting point for this walk is on the corner outside the Ferry House Pub (E14 3DT). This is about a fifth (0.2) of a mile from Island Gardens DLR station and 140 yards from Eastferry Rd bus stop which is served by the D7 and 135 busses. The end of the route is 0.2 of a mile from Harbinger School bus stop served by the D7 and 277 busses. Please check with TfL for further details.
