Charter Quay moorings history
The history of Kingston is a history of boats and boat builders. With a bit of imagination, you can almost see Kingston Museum’s 900AD log canoe, being used to explore the inlets and reed beds of the Hogsmill river. The archaeological dig preceding the Charter Quay building works discovered history laid upon history, and all of it bound one way or another to boats. Turks, a local boat builder and operator, have been crafting vessels since Kingston was established as a town in the 12th century.
Jerome K. Jerome, the Victorian travel writer, wrote his novel ‘Three Men in a Boat’ in the Druid’s Head, one of Kingston's oldest pubs situated on the border of Charter Quay. He hired his wooden camping skiff from Turks and spent his 1888 honeymoon rowing his new wife from Kingston to Oxford as research for the book.
