Walk Report

Another Wetherspoons Odyssey, Saturday 28th November 2015
21 walkers, 17 miles - leader Dave Williams
A large and enthusiastic group joined Dave for this 17-mile hike through southern London. The walk started with breakfast in the Richmal Crompton Wetherspoons in Bromley, then followed parts of the Capital Ring and Green Chain Walk through Beckenham Place to Greenwich. After pausing to admire the magnificent panorama from Greenwich observatory, the group dropped down into Greenwich proper, for lunch at the surprisingly un-crowded Gate Clock Wetherspoons.
Suitably refreshed, the walk progressed along the southern Thames, through Surrey Quays, taking in excellent views of the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf dominating the right-hand skyline. En route, a curiously elongated Peter the Great was inspected, and the "adults' playground" at Rotherhithe was thoroughly tested.
The walked finished at the Liberty Bounds Wetherspoons in Tower Hill, completing a great walk and excellent day out.
