OUR NEXT WALK, SCHEDULED FOR SUNDAY FEBRUARY 10 HAS HAD TO BE CANCELLED. For anyone interested in an alternative acvtivity on that morning, the Chinese new Year celebrations are taking place in Central London. We wish Jill a speedy recovery and will post details of the March walk asap.
Sunday, 9th December – a walk through three of London’s parks: St James’, Green and Hyde Parks; then an option to visit Winter Wonderland, or else walk on to see the decorations in Oxford Street, Regents Street and Carnaby Street.
Sunday, 11th November – a significant historical date, so we spent the 2 minutes of rememberance at 11 o’clock at the Charlton War Memorial outside St Luke’s Church before taking the bus to Blackheath and walking through Greenwich Park down to the National Maritime Museum to view their newly opened galleries (well worth a visit if you haven’t seen them!) and stop for refreshments in the cafe.
Sunday, 9th September, along part of the Isle of Dogs riverside path – with its splendid views back towards Greenwich – and on to Mudchute Farm, a green oasis with a backdrop of high rise commercial buildings. This is largely a flat walk of about a couple of miles, with a splendid cafe, where those not wishing to walk along the higher level contours of the park can sample the fare and wait for the rest of us to return. The walk continues across Millwall Park to end at Mudchute DLR for the return journey home.
