I have contributed to magazines, radio and live events and exhibited my mudlarking finds widely, including at St. Paul’s Cathedral, Cutlers’ Hall and OXO Tower Bargehouse.
My work has been featured in ‘Down By The River’ (BBC Radio), I’ve delivered lectures for organisations such as the National Maritime Museum, and my finds and research have been featured in publications such as Beach Combing Magazine and The Searcher Mag.
My series ‘Mudlarking with Old Father Thames’ appears on both YouTube and Patreon. New programmes are released every other week. I also produce spin-off episodes and currently have a new series in production with a digital network.
