The BST Walking Group is back 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.
For our next walk on June 28th we will be meeting at the site of the old Lesney factory on Lee Conservancey Road , E9 by Mabley Green at 7pm. From here we will drop down to The Hackney Cut and walk along the Lee Navigation and River Lea/Lee overlooking Walthamstow Marshes and taking in a view of The Middlesex Filter Beds. We will carry onwards towards Springfield Park where we can walk alongside the Marina and take in the view where the land drops away to reveal a view across the Lea towards Waltham Forest. We will exit Sprinfgield Park and come out at Clapton Common for travel home.
If you would like more information about this walk you can find more information on Capital Ring, Section 13.
The walk is approximately 2.5 miles so we have time for a nice gentle stroll before the sun goes down; you never know we might be lucky enough to catch a nice sunset.
Well behaved dogs on leads welcome, sensible shoes and grown up long trousers advised as we may walk through some grassland.
f 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.
