Walk Report

Hawksmoor Churches Discovery Walk, Sunday 17th January 2016
28 walkers, 17 miles - leader Susanne Waldschmidt
A great turnout for Susanne's excellent guided hike along the north Thames (mostly) from Trafalgar Square to Greenwich. Taking in the 6 (and a half) Hawksmoor churches en route, with abundant coffee (and beer) opportunities as we walked. We all learned a lot (even Susanne - who learned about Hawksmoor's mystical side) and came away invigorated after our first walk in probably 2 years that encountered snow. OK so it was only a few square inches in Russell Square and despite Paul's predictions we didn't actually see any woolly mammoths. But refreshing to exchange fields and mud for snow and pavements, at least for a day.
Thanks, Susanne!
