Walk Report

Cutty Sark and More, Thursday 28th July 2016
17 walkers, 7 miles - leader Dave Williams
Wetherspoons (if only to use the toilets) to Wetherspoons walk from Greenwich to Tower Hill. Passing the statue of Peter the Great (I thought there were two of these but apparently not) following the Thames with Dave's cunning detours of interest.
The high point was Stave Hill built on the rubble of the demolished Russian Dock which led us to Rotherhithe passing the Brunel Museum and the Angel Pub where it was the custom of the "Hanging Judge" (Jeffreys) to have a drink in the afternoon watching his victims being hung across the river (well it was before TV was invented)
Then along to Tower Bridge under a beautiful sky to the Wetherspoons - yea.
