Mariners' Guide to Bridges on the Tidal Thames

Mariners' Guide to Thames Bridges

Currently out of stock in print, the June 2012 edition of the Mariners' Guide to Bridges on the Tidal Thames provides an overview of navigating London's bridges, and highlights the safety issues associated with this challenging environment. The book covers every bridge in detail, each presented on a double page; illustrating the bridge with a photograph, side elevation drawing and digital chart extract. The particular issues associated with navigating through and in the area around the bridge completes each entry.

Also included in comprehensive appendices are bridge clearance tables, silhouettes, tidal set and other useful information for the navigator.

A PDF of the Mariners' Guide to Bridges on the Tidal Thames is available here for free.

Chart Folio 1: Teddington to Putney

Mariners' Guide to Thames Bridges

The PLA has re-compiled its series of A0 1:1250 and 1:2500 scale charts into A2 size 1:2500 and 1:5000 colour charts more suitable for navigational use. These are issued as two folios of charts, covering Teddington to Putney (charts 301 - 312) and Wandsworth to Margaretness (charts 313 - 325).

In order to support effective passage planning, the PLA recommends that, where the size and construction of the vessel allows, all commercial, inland waterways vessels carry the largest, appropriate scale of chart for their area of operation. Read more...

PLA - A Century of Service (published 2009)

A Century of Service

This book is a history of the PLA, specially commissioned to mark the organisation's centenary on 2009. Written by Nigel Watson, the book is a short introduction to the institution that, after a century of service, still plays an important role in the prosperity of the country and its capital city.

The book covers the origins of the Authority, which brought order to a Port in chaos and remedied years of under investment. It outlines how the PLA helped to keep the Port operating during two world wars, thanks to the hard work, dedication and heroism of its employees. It tells the story of the challenges faced by the Authority during the years after 1945, as a revolution in world shipping led to the eventual closure of the upriver docks and the transformation of the docklands landscape.
