Isle of Dogs Mudlarking   2 comments

I took a day off to go mudlarking but on the day my heart really wasn’t in it.  Perhaps the hangover had something to do with it.

Nevertheless, it is always a pleasure to walk the Thames foreshore between tides.

 

This stretch, near Sir John McDougall Gardens, was littered with bricks…and, for some reason many, many tampon applicators.  This Southwater brick was probably part of the sewars.

 

 

There were many of the Haunchwood bricks around.  This brick with holes was the start of the metaphorical finds on this journey (MF1):

 

 

(MF2) It is good practice, due to the speed at which the water levels change with the tides, to scan for escape options when on the foreshore.

 

(MF3) Prayer may not help, but what can it hurt?

 

 

(MF4) I can’t help it.  I actually pondered what it would take to get this back on the road, again.

 

 

(MF5) Arrived at published opening time and waited 10 minutes more.  Then, I walked to another pub, 25 minutes away, that was due to open in 20 minutes (write-up soon):

 

 

There were some really nice slabs of marble but only fragments of anything recognizable as part of a tombstone.
