Extracting a clay pipe from the mud of the River Thames.  Is it entire or not?!  Oh the suspense
 
02:30
It is always a thrill finding a clay pipe in the mud of the River Thames. Since tobacco was introduced to England in approx 1580, clay pipes have been around, and they were often smoked just once or twice before being discarded. When I am mudlarking along the River Thames in London I often come across old clay pipes and I have now built up quite a collection. To see more clay pipe extractions and other Thames mudlarking finds, please visit my channel!

Join me for a walk along the Thames Estuary in Kent on a blustery, rainy and very cold day in November. But not just any day! It's my birthday - 20th November 2018. When I woke up this morning, I really felt as if I needed to get out in the elements, and so I set off for a few hours on the Thames Estuary. I felt very happy to be out in the wind and the rain with the waders and the gulls! And, I even found a few interesting bits and pieces. Thanks for joining me. I hope you enjoy this little interlude in the Estuary. Nicola www.tidelineart.com

London Mudlarking - Mystery of the carved penknife
 
22:51
Hi Everyone! Join me as I go mudlarking on the Thames foreshore in London. This video is made up of a selection of Thames mudlarking finds from the last few months. I welcome suggestions and information on my finds so please don't hesitate to get in touch. The YouTube video I refer to at the end of the video relating to the WW2 pets and Bonzo's dog collar tag is here:- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tuf58n8YDE4 Whilst researching Bonzo's tag, I came across the book by Clare Campbell, called "Bonzo's War" which documents the plight of over 2.5 million pets who were put down during WW2. I contacted Clare and we have now decided to try to raise enough for a permanent memorial to these pets. To this end, I have created a Just Giving page which is below in case you would like to make a donation, no matter how small, to make this a reality:- https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ww2petsmemorial Thank you for watching!

The reason why there are so many clay pipes on the Thames Foreshore
 
19:12
One of the questions which people ask me frequently is "Why are there so many clay pipes on the Thames foreshore?" I love finding clay pipes. Since the late 16 century, clay pipes have been in existence (tobacco was introduced to England in approximately 1580), and we are still discovering them today. Clay pipes were essentially disposable and so they are pretty much like old fashioned cigarette ends (only nicer). Join me as I find some clay pipes in the Thames mud and I wonder about why there are so many to be found on the foreshore, even to this day. I have used many resources during the research for this video, and so, a big Thank You to: The Society for Clay Pipe Research (who have an excellent fb page) http://scpr.co/ https://www.facebook.com/groups/Claypipes/ Also, the Pipe Archives http://www.pipearchive.co.uk/ Chiz Harward - Urban Archaeology http://urban-archaeology.blogspot.com/p/about-urban-archaeology.html The Thames Discovery Programme http://www.thamesdiscovery.org/ Thank you for watching. I hope this video goes some way towards answering this question - "Why are there SO many pipe stems and clay pipe remnants - on the Thames foreshore!
London Mudlarking - Stunning clay pipe find!
 
19:54
The last three videos which I have created were made and shot in the River Medway, Kent. A place I love. If you haven't seen the Hoo Adventure series, then do go and take a look at my video library, as we did unearth some fabulous pieces of history with wonderful stories attached to them. Now I have headed back to the River Thames in London to see what the tide has thrown out to be discovered. I mention the Society for Clay Pipe Research in this video. Their website is here:- http://scpr.co/ This site can answer the many questions that people have about pipes, particulary about why so many are found on the Thames. You need a permit to mudlark on the Thames, and you can find the necessary info on how to acquire one, here: https://www.pla.co.uk/Environment/Thames-foreshore-access-including-metal-detecting-searching-and-digging I regularly tweet out my finds on twitter and put them on instagram too. You can find me at @tidelineart on both of these social media platforms. Always happy to get feedback, constructive criticism , ideas and suggestions related to my videos. Thank you for watching.

Mudlarking on the River Thames London - Hitler Youth Belt Buckle
 
25:57
Join me as I mudlark along the River Thames London. This video consists of a variety of mudlarking finds from some recent outings, including one find which I was really not expecting. This find is a Hitler Youth Belt Buckle. One of the things I love about mudlarking - is that you simply don't know what the Thames is going to throw out next. Each tide is different. One of the finds on this video shocked me but motivated me to find out as much as I could about it. My research often takes me to places that I had not intended to go! Certainly if I had not found this particular object in the Thames, I would never have learned what I did. I hope you enjoy it. Thank you for watching. You need a permit to mudlark on the Thames foreshore. You can find all the information on the website of the Port of London Authority. When I lark at night I use an Olight headlamp and torch. I highly recommend them. You can find their info here:- http://bit.ly/2ECZ1TV https://www.olightstore.uk Thank you for watching. Nicola www.tidelineart.com twitter and instagram : @tidelineart

10:05
Accompany me on a mudlarking excursion along the Thames foreshore, London. This is a selection of finds from the last few months including a 19th century traders token and part of a stringed instrument, but which one, I am not sure! The Thames is an endless source of inspiration to me and I love to discover these pieces of London's past washed up on the foreshore. As well as researching the history behind my finds, I enjoy creating collages and artwork with metal, pottery, glass and other bits and pieces that I collect. I do not use a metal detector.

Searching for Messages in bottles - Hunting for the Words of Strangers)
 
04:58
During my mudlarking expeditions along the River Thames, and beachcombing trips along the Thames Estuary it is not only ancient history that is to be found. There is a lot of plastic pollution and rubbish to be found in the River Thames and the Thames Estuary and during these trips, I always try to collect at least 2 bags of rubbish, mostly plastic waste, to take away with me. Sometimes, amongst the rubbish I find the unexpected - and I have now collected well over 130 messages in bottles. In September 2014, BBC Video Journalist Tom J Beal came with me on a beachcombing trip and we searched for messages in bottles. Tom has kindly allowed me to repost the video here. I also have written a "behind the scenes" about the day we filmed - and you can find that here:- http://www.tidelineart.com/message-in-a-bottle-finds/bbc-news-real-time-series-behind-the-scenes-of-words-from-the-water Message in a bottle: Hunting for the words of strangers People have been releasing messages in bottles into the sea for centuries. Cries for help, hopes and dreams, and greetings from one country to another have all been cast into the water for someone else to find. Nicola White found her first message in a bottle by chance in the River Thames in 2011. She then started hunting for them and has gone on to find more than 30. (***update - have now find more than 130) The messages have included an appeal for a job, declarations of love and gems of wisdom. Nicola also sends her own messages in bottles and encourages people to use a glass bottle because it is "better for the environment". BBC News joined Nicola as she went hunting for more words from the water, to discover why she does it. Video journalist: Tom Beal http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/magazine-28904275/message-in-a-bottle-hunting-for-the-words-of-strangers This video was first posted by the BBC and was filmed and edited by video journalist Tom J Beal.

A Thames  mudlarking find reveals the life of a World War I Soldier
 
14:26
Occasionally, a seemingly innocuous find in the River Thames such as a small piece of metal with a name and address on it, can be compared to opening up a glorious story book. It is no secret that it is the hidden stories behind the items which I find washed out by the Thames tide, which fuel my passion for mudlarking.. After finding a small brass luggage tag on the Thames foreshore in 2015, with the help of a lot of people on twitter, I was to find that this small piece of metal belonged to a man who fought in the trenches in World War I. To find out more, watch this video and you can read the full story on my blog which is at:- http://www.tidelineart.com/tideline-art-blog/a-river-thames-mudlarking-find-brings-to-life-world-war-one-soldier-frederick-jury-1873-1932 Thank you.

Hoo Island Part I -  Abandoned Victorian military fort
 
20:44
Island Adventure - Part One. Join me as I kayak over to a small island in the River Medway, Kent - to explore an abandoned Victorian fort and its surrounds. Hoo Fort and Darnet fort were built in the 19th century. Hoo Fort was completed in approximately 1871. These twin forts were to be placed on either side of the main Medway channel, the idea being to control the channel with a boom between the two islands, whist defending the approaches by means of two powerful batteries of guns. They were built to play a role in defending the UK in the mid 19th century. Hoo fort was equipped with eleven 9 inch rifled-muzzle loading (R.M.L) guns. The fort was disarmed and abandoned before the first world war. During the 2nd world war it was used as an observation point. (info from "Medway Island Forts" by R Crowdy) We had a great day searching for history on the island. This is part one. As always, if you can identify any of the finds then please let me know. Thank you for watching! Nicola www.tidelineart.com

Mudlarking in London - Rusty padlock unlocks a sad wartime story
 
18:58
is not uncommon to find reminders of our wartime past on the Thames foreshore - and when I am mudlarking, I frequently come across ordnance, military buttons and pieces of shrapnel washed out with the tide. With the military buttons in particular, I always wonder whose uniform they were once sewed on to. A few weeks ago, I found an object whilst mudlarking, with no obvious connection to the war, and infact I very nearly left it where it was. It was a large and heavy, rusty padlock. What peaked my interest though, was the fact that I could see a name stamped on it across the front. I hesitated before putting it (along with another one right next to it), in my finds bag and lugging it home. This video follows my research from finding a rusty old padlock on the Thames foreshore, and then finding out about the family whose name is stamped on it. Thank you for watching.

River Thames Mudlarking - Treasures & Trash!
 
25:40
Join me on an early morning Autumnal lark along the River Thames in London. You never know what you are going to find in the Thames mud, and today, I found a fair few clay pipes, as well as some other Thames treasures. If you want to try mudlarking you do need a permit from the Port of London Authority. It's very reasonable indeed, costing just £75 for a period of 3 years.

Mudlarking for pieces of history along the Thames foreshore in London
 
05:07
Mudlarking along the Thames foreshore and searching for pieces of history. It is always a thrill to spot a clay pipe bowl in the Thames mud, and then discover that it is actually quite intact with a long stem. From the late 16th century to early 20th century, clay pipes were thrown away after one or two uses. They were often bought filled with tobacco and then thrown away once smoked. The stems were snapped to get a better smoke, hence the abundance of stems on the foreshore so Im told. As you will see from this video, it is immensely satisfying pulling an intact pipe from its muddy bed - that it's been cosily snoozing in for centuries! I hope you enjoy. Thank you.

Mudlarking on the River Thames London - The story of Millbank prison

Today's video features a range of mudlarking finds from the last few weeks, including a tiny button with a big story, as well as some clay pipe extractions, a vintage petrol cap and other delights found in the Thames mud. What I love about mudlarking is that when you find an object it is so motivating to research it - and the information you come up with can be so unexpected. It really brings history alive. Spring is in the air on the Thames foreshore - and goslings and cygnets abound! I was fortunate enough to be nearby when one of the local swans was hatching her eggs! It was quite something to see a tiny cygnet emerge from an egg. If you have any comments or ideas on any of the finds in the video, please get in touch and let me know. Thank you for watching.

Mudlarking along the Thames foreshore for evidence of past lives and pieces of history. Today I found a rather lovely golden box, a George VI coin from Malaya and.... a human tooth. What are the stories behind these finds?! It certainly gets your imagination going. Thanks for watching
