Episode 8:  An Estuarine Odyssey- Tilbury

This week John Rogers and Nick Papadimitriou head down the A13 to Tilbury led by geologist Dr Kate Spencer from Queen Mary, University of London and musician Andy Ramsay from Europa51.
They walk the foreshore of the windswept Thames Estuary between the two Tilbury forts,  over the cracking surface of an historic the 1930s landfill site pushing up Shippam’s paste jars through the flaking clay cap which also sprouts poisonously hallucinogenic thorn apple plants.

With readings by Heidi Lapaine to music by Europa51
