Lost Valley of London: Pirates Of Execution Dock

Avast! This short video about Wapping's pirate history is more than ship-shape, it's deck-swabbingly brilliant. Join Anthony MR Lewis in his latest 'Lost Valley of London' adventure among privateers, river police and gibbeted corpses. Hope you fo'c'sle enjoy it.

Another mini movie masterpiece...


Lovely clip!!!

Brilliant clip - but as Anthony hints, drop under the Thames - via the Overground and your Oyster Card - from Wapping station to Rotherhithe - there's the Mayflower, the Angel (directly opposite Execution Dock), Brunel Museum, St Mary's Church, the Watch café, Sands Film Studio, and the Old Mortuary (Time and Talents) ....

A pity Drake isn't given a Devon accent. John Aubrey tells us he spake broad Devon 'til the day he died.


Amazing video!
