About the Book

'From Battersea to the Tower' provides the reader with an interesting and artistic picture of the history, beauty and occasion that is associated with an area of the Thames Path on both the North and South banks of the river.

This book is a perfect accompaniment for both the walker and armchair reader, and focuses on the passage between Battersea Bridge and Tower Bridge, identifying numerous buildings of historical significance as well as the bridges themselves that cross the Thames.

Each chapter includes a brief, but detailed history, of the relevant boroughs and districts which border the path, identifying the origins of many street names together with plenty of ghostly tales from the past.
