Every month, author Michael John looks at life on London’s magnificent River Thames. From the dredgers emptying their cargoes of sand and gravel, to the mudlarks combing the foreshore for lost treasures, he’ll be meeting the people, visiting the places and boarding the tugs, tenders, barges, lighters, ships, RIBs and river buses that work this mighty, muddy artery.
