A hauntingly beautiful social history of the Thames Estuary, from the
author of On Brick LaneOut at the eastern edge of England, between land
and ocean, you will find beautiful, haunted salt marshes, coastal
shallows and wide-open skies: the Thames Estuary. The estuary is an
ancient gateway to England, a passage for numberless travellers in and
out of London. And for generations, the people of Kent and Essex have
lived and worked on the Estuary, learning its waters, losing loved ones
to its deeps.
Their heritage is a proud but never an easy one. In the face of a world changing around them, they endure. Rachel Lichtenstein spent five years exploring this unique community and recording its extraordinary chorus of voices, present and past.
From mud larkers and fishermen to radio pirates and champion racers, from buried princesses to unexploded bombs, Estuary is a celebration of a haunting & profoundly British place.
