After school ( and more often than not during it )
I would set off from Vauxhall Bridge and walk towards the City... sometimes, when the tide was out, along the river's edge.
A mate of mine, without the aid f any detector but soley by sight and a bit of savvy, was able to pinpoint and dig up ornate pipe heads, glass and ancient coins.
Around his neck was Alexander.
On my return, it was odd how many people chose to have sex at this spot.
