Walking Group

The walking group met for their first time in May and we have a few outings planned for the rest of the summer.  All members are welcome – we will announce the details at the monthly meetings or you can e-mail us.

This photograph was taken at our first walk through Clissold Park, Abney Park Cemetery and Springfield Park.

We have now had 4 lovely Summer evening strolls and we seemed to have developed a bit of a watery theme, having enjoyed walking alongside the River Lea, The Regents Canal and this week walking to Limehouse Basin and taking a Thames Clipper boat ride from Canary Wharf to London Bridge.

We will continue our watery theme for the last of our Summer evening ambles on Wednesday September 13th at 6.30pm by loosely following the New River Path from Green Lanes to Stamford Hill. We will have a chance to look over at The East and West Reseviors around Woodberry Wetlands and see the waterfront developments following the regeneration of the Woodberry Down Estate. This will be a shorter walk as the nights will be drawing in by then.

Our final walk of the year was on Saturday September 30th. We travelled by train to Eastbourne and were met by Maureen from Eastbourne Meads WI who was so generous with her time and knowledge and who accompanied us throughout the day.  Following a lovely pub lunch at The Tiger Inn in East Dean, we walked to Birling Gap and then onto Beachy Head. The views were breathtaking and we were fortunate to have a lovely sunny afternoon.  Huge thanks to Maureen and also to Debby and Nichola for organising this final walk of the summer.
