Docks and Dykes: A girl in every port
GWN Walking Tour
Meeting Point: Tower Hill
Saturday 17 September 2016
Let’s dispel the myth that women were unlucky on ships; in fact they were quite a usual sight on many voyages. We look at some surprising details about women living as men alongside men in the navy as well as the army. We also celebrate those who lost their lives for their country over the years and those who have received commendations for their work. It is a wonderful bracing walk along the shore of the Thames from Tower Hill to Limehouse where we will also learn about the area’s rich history.
Full details on where to meet and where we finish the tour will be included in the booking confirmation.
Please book in advance by emailing Emma. Cost: £12 pp.
