Fulham Palace guided walk | Fulham Palace foreshore | Tuesday, 01. October 2019

As part of Fulham Palace's Foreshore Festival join archaeologists from the Thames Discovery Programme for a walk on the Palace foreshore. This walk will explore the foreshore by Fulham Palace, the historic home of the Bishops of London since 704AD and piece together the history of this ancient crossing place on the Thames. 
We will meet at 11:30am at the Bishop's Stairs, the first set of stairs on the river path, upstream of Putney Bridge. 
Further information
Places are limited so booking is essential! The foreshore surface can be uneven and muddy – please wear sturdy footwear; boots or wellies are recommended! In case of inclement weather, the walks may be postponed or cancelled.
The TDP leads regular guided walks on the foreshore for adults, and families with older children and 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 regularly 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.
