     Talk by Simon Inglis (author, Played in London)

    Putney to Kew

    "Charting the heritage of the world’s most historic watercourse”

    Everyone knows that the University Boat Race starts at Putney and ends at Mortlake. But why? And what effect has this quirk of sporting history had upon the Surrey and Middlesex banks of the Thames between two famous points?

    In this illustrated lecture, author and historian Simon Inglis – editor of the English Heritage series, Played in Britain – takes us on a lively tour of the boathouses, bridges pubs, embankments and landmarks that line the river between Putney and Kew, interweaving architecture with sporting, social and urban history, with a bit of Michael Jackson and AP Herbert thrown in for good measure.
