Walk Report

North Greenwich to Canary Wharf, Wednesday 21st January 2015
15 walkers, 6 miles - leader Paul Lawrence
Preceded by a return trip on the cable-car across the Thames, the Emirates Air Line, the walk linked the 02 to Canary Wharf along the Thames Path, crossing the Thames through the Greenwich Foot Tunnel and using pedestrian walkways along the old docksides across the Isle of Dogs to end at the Ledger Building Wetherspoons for a drink and meal. En route we visited the Old Royal Naval College and walked on atmospheric riversides that were the sites of past shipping and seafaring industries.
