The Covid-19 pandemic brought with it a lot of new experiences, including a new sense of quietude, and a time for reflection. Brian Lamden uses this time to reflect upon and share with you the little-known world of Thames boating.
A lot has changed over the last sixty years, for the better and the worse, but the boating community has seen a drastic change. Brian recalls the community he so fondly remembers from his early boating days, the boats that have defined the lives of his family and friends, and takes his readers on a journey along the Thames, reviewing all the ways the landscape has changed from the river's perspective. His unique view and cherished memories provide an illuminating account of British life over the last sixty years and look forward to a time when such qualities might once again be prioritised by the British people.
