John Inglis launches Thames panoramas project

John Inglis and Jill Sanders who live on Garrick’s Ait near Hampton are working on Thames panoramas old and new.

First they are proposing to put online Samuel Leigh’s 1829 panorama of the Thames from London to Richmond. It was published for people to enjoy whilst being rowed on the river so few copies have survived in tact.

As a film maker John is well placed to also make a new photographic version which will start at Tower Bridge and go upstream as far as Hampton Court.

Jill is a journalist from the Kingston area and her former colleague June Sampson has been taking to the couple for the Surrey Comet.
