Easter eggs in grass

 

Spotted on the Borough Tops Walk, the young people of south London have a very apt message for the Russian president. 

 

Recent LDWA London Group Walks

The following photos are taken from Gavin's Borough Tops walk a 20.7 mile walk mainly following the Green Chain Walk and bagging the tops of Lewisham/Southwark, Lambeth, Bexley and Greenwich.   There is something strangely enjoyable in bagging a top even though some are slightly underwhelming and no one knows where they are - although we did let everyone know that we could (at least I did).
