A Brighton double and a new development - this week with London LDWA

A new development? As Rockin' Robin would put it, 'All the little birdies on Jaybird Street, Love to hear the robin go tweet, tweet, tweet.' London LDWA now has a Twitter account. We are London Long Distance Walkers and our 'handle' is @LondonLDWA, We will be tweeting news of upcoming walks and events, posting accounts and photos of our activities and - most definitely - attracting new members. Give us a follow and help bring our wonderful group to the attention of the wider world!

But do tear yourselves away from your phones in time to sample this week's offerings, both based around Jerome's London-Brighton odyssey. On Wednesday evening comes the scene-setting Prologue, at 8.5 miles a little longer than usual, which will allow more time to enjoy the footpaths and commons of South London. This will be followed on Saturday by the first walk in the series proper, via a chain of LDPs from East Croydon to Redhill.
