There’s only one day a year that the time and tide are right for The Vauxhall Society’s Thames Foreshore Guided Walk and Tuesday 7 July is it, kickoff 12.30pm.

Do join us on this year’s walk, free by courtesy of CLS Holdings. Everybody’s welcome, your guide is Eliott Wragg, Field Officer of the Museum of London’s Thames Discovery Programme, and we meet at 12.30pm at Lack’s Dock Slipway, Vauxhall, at the side of ‘Legoland’, or Vauxhall Cross, the HQ of MI6.

What’s to see? Traces of thousands of years of history, perhaps bits of buy cialis 50 mg a Saxon fish trap for example. Pronounced ‘biologically dead’ in the 1950s, the Thames is now one of the world’s least polluted metropolitan tideways. There’s about 120 species of fish in the river these days.

Lack’s Dock itself is where revellers used to be rowed over to for a night’s razzle at nearby Vauxhall Gardens , before the first Vauxhall Bridge was completed in 1816.
