Fieldwork at Isleworth

Totally Thames: Isleworth Guided Walk

Outside the Town Wharf public house, Swan Street, Isleworth, TW7 6RJ

Time: 10.30 - 12.00

Price: £10.30, FREE for Londoners over 75

Join the Thames Discovery Programme for a guided foreshore walk at Isleworth and learn more about the fascinating and unique archaeology and history of the River Thames. Find out more about previous investigations on the site and hear all about the most exciting discoveries to date including a WWI submarine chaser. If the tide is low enough we might even be lucky enough to see a 1000 year old fish trap! This walk is part of the Totally Thames festival, an annual celebration of the River Thames. Thanks to funding from City Bridge Trust, this event is free for Londoners aged over 75.

Please meet in the car park of the Town Wharf pub on Swan Street at 10:30 am. Please note that the foreshore surface can be muddy and unstable, so sturdy footwear (boots or wellies) is recommended. In case of inclement weather, the walk may be postponed or cancelled - please contact the TDP team.

Some surface-only artefact handling may be permitted, 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.

Booking in advance is strongly recommended, and can be done via Eventbrite.
