Walk Report

Springtime in London, Tuesday 12th April 2016
12 walkers, 6 miles - leader Susan Cannell
A total of 12 like-minded walkers set off along the Thames Path (south side) in a westerly direction to Lambeth Bridge. Crossing to north side making our way to the Houses of Parliament we stopped briefly to look at some of the significant memorials and a statue of Emmeline Pankhurst. Circling both St James' and Green Park we were treated to the natural beauty of spring such as trees in blossom, wild and cultivated flowers enjoying the mild weather together with a variety of very beautiful and moving monuments. Sadly time did not allow us to enjoy Hyde Park In its springtime glory. Finishing about 8.30 in Trafalgar Square we adjourned to a nearby hostelry to enjoy a well-earned drink, food and time to catch up with friends. Thanks to everyone who came.
