After the Midwinter over Thames walk it was suggested that we redo the walk in summer and see how far we can get around the summer solstice. And to lengthen it further, we're taking in the two foot tunnels under the Thames first before proceeding to the bridges. This time we shall go over both Golden Jubilee Bridges so as to provide some variety from the previous time, meaning we shall be crossing the bridges upstream from there in the reverse direction, and be on the other bank in between, up to Richmond Lock, before continuing until Kingston (estimated mileage to there 39) at least. We should be able to cross every footbridge over the Thames in London by then

General Notes
Later starters have options to join at Greenwich (Meet by the entrance to the foot tunnel at 09.00), or at any point along the route - please let the leader know if you plan to join en route so as to sort out a meeting point. Plenty of break points along the route. Once we reach Kingston we go any further from there will depend on what time we arrive and whether anyone wants to go on, as by then anything more might be considered a bridge too far!
