The Walk in Pictures 1066 Harold’s Way, Walk 1
Statues and the Prospect of Whitby
Here, by the river in Rotherhithe, there is a sense of times past – there have been people living and working at the dock since Saxon times and I do feel that I am walking through history.
The Brunel Museum displays the historic Thames Tunnel. Cumberland Wharf (with its sculpture ‘Sunbeam Weekly and the Pilgrim’s Pocket’) leads to the entrance to Surrey Water and its red rolling lift bridge installed in the 1950s. Follow the Thames Path signs past the Old Salt Quay PH, with just under 4 miles to go.
