Step 2: Walk away from the river on Broken Wharf. Turn right on to High Timber Street. Walk past the end of Gardner's Lane and Stew Lane, perhaps pausing to read the information about Samuel Pepys on Stew Lane. Turn right to join the Thames Path.
Step 3: Samuel Pepys (1633 - 1703), English diarist and naval administrator. He was an eyewitness to key events such as the Great Fire of London.
Step 4: The stews in Stew Lane refer to 12th - 17th century licensed and regulated brothels. Most of the stews were on the south bank. The lane may have led to a crossing point on the river, used by women working in the Bankside stews.
Step 5: Walk back in time past the Queenhithe Mosaic. Make sure you look out for Queen Matilda and her Place of Easement! Look over the wall to Queenhithe, a thriving Saxon and Medieval dock. Turn left and continue to follow the Thames Path.
Step 6: Queenhithe Dock Mosaic (2011 - 2014). Created by 300 artists and volunteers. The border contains finds from the foreshore.
