Bugsby’s Reach saved

Bugsby’s Reach, the first reach on the Thames Path, is not going to be renamed Waterman’s Reach.

The idea of marking the 5ooth anniversary of the Waterman’s Company sounded  a good idea but losing the name Bugsby’s meant losing a link with the mysterious past.

The move was first reported announced last year by the Port of London Authority and the consultation in March this year.

It’s a welcome and surprise decision. It is also surprising that only 47 people responded to the consultation.

The decision notice has been issued by the PLA.
