Walk Report

Tower Hill to Stratford, Tuesday 24th May 2016
7 walkers, 8 miles - leader Ron Williamson
After a rest in The Liberty Bounds (Wetherspoons? Of course) 5 of the walkers were joined by 2 others for the evening walk which consisted of the evergreen walk along the Thames to Limehouse Basin and then along the River Lea to Stratford where 2 walkers headed for the station leaving the rest of us to pay homage to the future home of West Ham (some as fans some as taxpayers)
The evening weather was sunny with a cold wind but perfect conditions for views of the Thames and Canary Wharf.
Only 3 of us made it to the pub at Stratford (Wetherspoons? Of course).
