Did you know that when the tide is out, the Thames is the longest open – air archaeological site in London, and much of the foreshore is freely accessible to the public? Well its true! And the Chiswick Pier Trust warmly invites you to come and learn more about the archaeology of the Thames foreshore and the activities of the Thames Discovery Programme.

The Thames Discovery Programme is a three-year Heritage Lottery Funded project that aims to engage Londoners with the archaeology that can be found on the inter-tidal area of the River Thames so do come along and see what they are doing. You might even be inspired to join in and find about your local history yourself.

Doors open at 7pm on Monday January 18th and the event will start at 7.30pm. Free to Chiswick Pier Trust Members, £3 to non-members.

Chiswick Pier and Chiswick Pier House are at the end of Corney Road and Edensor Road, Chiswick, W4 2UG.

Refreshments will be available. The talk is part of a series organised by the Chiswick Pier Trust, a charity that puts people in touch with the River Thames.
