Walk Reminder-   London LDWA 20th anniversary walks - 20 Aug and 13 Sept. Plus weekend walk 23rd Aug
The London LDWA group was formed in 1994 when 8 local LDWA members met in  the Charing Cross Hotel. There was a Evening Pub Meet/ Tour of Wapping on August  17th followed by the groups first full day walk on August 20th from Kelvedon to  Chappel and Wakes Colne. Both of these walks were led by the then Strider Editor  and LDWA 100 Photographer Steve Clarke who is no relation to the current LDWA  100 Photographer also called Steve Clarke. I will be repeating both this walks  within the next month. Both of these walks will be at a moderate pace.
 
Next Wednesday (Aug 20th) there is a 6 mile walk from the Dickens Inn, St  Katherines Dock (nearest tube Tower Hill) around the Wapping Area which will  call at one riverside pub and will finish at another.
