The BST Walking Group is well underway and we will be meeting on the last Thursday of each month during British Summer Time . We like to take in the greenery and waterways in and around Hackney for a gentle evening stroll, and discover some places that we just don’t usually find the time to explore.
Our next walk will be along a part of heritage section of The New River Path . We will meet in Green Lanes crossing part of Clissold Park and picking up the Path where it runs along the north side of The East Resevoir in the Woodberry Wetlands. The nature reserve isn’t open in the evenings but we can enjoy a lovely walk overlooking the reserve whilst observing the redevelopment of the Woodberry Down Estate.
After the walk we will make our way back to DeBeauvoir Town by bus and an optional extra is to head to The Scolt Head for a lovely evening of free jazz with the Peter Werth Jazz Crew.
Well behaved dogs on leads welcome, sensible shoes and grown up long trousers advised as we may walk through some grassland.
If you haven’t already signed up for our next walk but would like to come along , please do get in touch.

This photograph was taken at our first walk in 2017 through Clissold Park, Abney Park Cemetery and Springfield Park.
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 for coming along and helping us to organise this final walk of the summer.
