Walk Report

13 Bridges Walk, Wednesday 13th June 2012
21 walkers, 9 miles - leader Peter Buchwald
From Tower Bridge with its ancient fort
To the bustling South Bank rotisseries
And back again on the London Bridge
To the quiet of the evening City.

At Southwark to the sybaritic South
Over the wobbly Millennium Bridge
Towards the grand dome of St Pauls
Offices where men in suits partied.

Across the Blackfriars, small shops
Then danced to a band at Waterloo
Passed sculpture gardens at Hungerford
And milling crowds at the London Eye.

The Mother of Parliaments by Westminster
The walk across the Lambeth Bridge
Past a lonely riverside bar in a boat
Crystalline offices at Vauxhall afar.

The sleepy Chelsea riverside blocks
Battersea park with its Peace Pagoda
Bohemian houseboats at Albert Bridge
To the narrowest Battersea crossing.
