Selina Springbett reports on a recent visit to the Rotherhithe foreshore by the Rotherhithe FROG.

Members of the Foreshore Recording and Observation Group (FROG) regularly monitor sites along the river, noting the condition and presence or absence of previously known features and deposits, and identifying and recording the position of those newly observed.
