Mudlarking in Deptford is a re-imagining of the traditional guided tour which empowers young people to engage creatively with the built environment. It involves users as co-designers, producing a tour by making use of mobile technologies to both initiate and respond to a scattering of located nodes in and around Deptford Creek. Key Stage 3 students walk usually inaccessible and fenced-off areas of Deptford, making imaginative connections between large and small-scale relics that connect histories and stories embedded in the creek itself.
