SWINGING THE LAMP

Author: 

Nick Ardley

ISBN number: 

9781781554982

Published by  Fonthill Media

I first came across Nick Ardley’s books a couple of years ago, courtesy of my sister. ‘Swinging the Lamp’ is his latest publication and continues his pleasingly unique view of the Thames, Medway and East Coast. He gives an insightful glimpse into the history – both on and by the water –of these remote areas, with a relaxed prose and a knowledgeable background, especially concerning Thames sailing barges – Nick was brought up on SB May Flower - and all accompanied by many photographs spanning the decades.

The Thames Wilderness

Author: 

Richard T Mayon White and Wendy Yorke

ISBN number: 

9781 4081 8112 6

Published by Adlard Coles Nautical

This is a great book, although it did not immediately give me what I thought it would. Living in central London, I opened the covers hoping to find unknown wilderness right in SW1. In fact the book does not cover very central London Thames (east of Putney and west of Limehouse), because wilderness there is hard to find as Rob MacFarlane would probably agree. In that respect it disappointed, perhaps it was unreasonable to expect it to actually create new lands.
