Roman Foreshore Walk

Dear Clay Appreciator,

It’s a while since we were in touch. We hope you are well.  You are receiving this message as you are on the Clayground list to receive blog posts and announcements as well as our occasional newsletter.

This is an announcement of our first foreshore walk of 2022 which will take place on Sunday 1st May, 8.45 am – 11.30 am.  Only 20 places are available.  To book see link below.

We are hosting a specialist foreshore walk with a focus on Roman London, led as always by Clayground Associate Archaeologist, Mike Webber. 

Clayground is currently working with the Friends of the Highgate Roman kiln on a project to restore ancient ceramic workings and create an education centre in Highgate Wood, North London. To learn more about the development of Roman London, the walk will illuminate important Roman sites beside the Thames before going onto the foreshore to discover ceramic traces of Roman life.  Some of these may well have been fired in the Highgate kilns.

“This is amazing. I never knew you could be so closely in touch with ancient London.”  Clayground foreshore walk participant.

The walk will start near Cannon Street, visit the Queenhithe London history mosaic, before going down onto the foreshore to look for fragments of Roman pottery. More directions will be sent on booking.

Cost of this specialist walk is £25.00 per adult. There are just 2 discounted child places at £15.00 for ages 8-17. Please use the promo code CHILD if you wish to book for children. Please note only 2 child places per walk are available and 8 is the minimum age.

Please be aware that the foreshore can be dangerous. It is not suitable for anyone who experiences difficulty using steps or walking on uneven ground.

We do not allow dogs on the walk.

Clayground is licensed for group walks by the Port of London Authority.

Further dates will be announced soon.

All good wishes from all at Clayground.
