What Area does the Society Embrace?

As the name implies, the river means the River Thames, although it equally applies to those rivers and tributaries flowing into it, including the Medway which is accessed via the Thames estuary. The extent of the river is that which is considered to a greater, or lesser degree, navigable and to an extent, tidal. In rough terms this means that part of the river which embraces it’s estuary to the east, finishing at the locks at Teddington in the west. However, neither end is set in concrete so far as membership is concerned and any commercial enterprises beyond, particularly the western end, would be very welcome.
