The highlight of the walk will be a visit to the River Thames Police Museum at Wapping. It is rarely open to the public but Robert Jeffries,the Curator,has agreed to do so for our LONDON FOOTSTEPS group. It will beinteresting to learn why the River Police unit was formed in the late 18thcentury andof their early efforts to tackle the widespread criminal activity at the time.
NOTE: This walk and visit has been re-scheduled following the postponement on the hottest day of the year in July. If you were booked on that walk, please let me know if you want your booking transferred to this new date. You will have priority!
