Mudlarking at Low Tide! What Happened to the Woolwich Kiln? Find out with me! 30.07.21

Join me on the River Thames foreshore, London, Great Britain, at low tide! Experience the riverbed uncovered, search for historic finds with me, and unlock doors to discover more about the way we lived. This week I’m looking at what happened to an important historic find from 1974…The Woolwich Kiln.

So, without further ado, let’s go search through our liquid history!
