Walk Report

Along the Thames from Waterloo, Sunday 28th December 2014
18 walkers, 17 miles - leader David Rossington
Seventeen people joined the Group's the "Along the Thames from Waterloo" hike on Saturday, 28 December. It was a beautiful sunny day and we enjoyed seeing a cross section of London from the centre to the outskirts as we walked from Waterloo along the Thames Path, beyond the Thames Barrier to Erith, reaching our destination just as the sun was setting.
