Lara Maiklem,LARKING and MUDLARKING

Wednesday 15th December 2021

Her first book, 'Mudlarking: Lost and Found on the River Thames'  is the story of the river told through the objects she has found and is a tale of obsession, tide-watching, mud-walking and endless hours of searching in all weathers.  Her second book, A Field Guide to Larking: Beachcombing, Mudlarking, Fieldwalking and More, is an illustrated practical guide for those who want to search for themselves, whether on beaches (beachlarking), in fields (fieldlarking), houses (houselarking), gardens (gardenlarking) and of course mudlarking in rivers.

Maiklem persists in seeking out a curious beauty. Her description of  fog is worthy of Dickens or Joseph Conrad. She pungently evokes the broken bridges, slippery river stairs, causeways, jetties and boatyards. No one has looked at these odd corners since Sherlock Holmes ― Sunday Telegraph
