Navigating the Thames through Central London : Rules, hazards, distances, and places between Margaret Ness and Putney Bridge
By Robert Ludlow
Covers from Margaret Ness in the east, to Putney Bridge in the west. This is the area for which a local knowledge endorsement is required for most commercial skippers. It is a very busy part of the Thames, with every conceivable type of craft.
The book is divided into three parts:
• The first part gives general information and advice, and in passing, mentions local rules which will be relevant
• The second part lists many places the names of which you might read or hear on the radio
• The third part outlines the types of hazard you will encounter as you make your way up river on a fold-out chart
