Walk the Thames Trail

The Thames Trail is a project by Viewfinder Photography exploring the Greenwich Riverside. Viewfinder are producing an app to guide participants through the history of the area which will be launched shortly.  

Avant-Gardening's Paul Green has been invited to lead a walk along the river, from the Cutty Sark to the 02 looking at the nature that intermittently breaks through the historical industrial landscape. 

Download the Thames Trail app and bring your camera as we explore Greenwich's riverside landscape

Places on the walk are FREE but need to be booked in advance. For more information and to book a place visit http://viewfinder.org.uk/events/thames-trail-walk-with-paul-green-from-avant-gardening
