Walk Report

From Borough Market to Hoxton Square, Wednesday 21st September 2016
15 walkers, 7 miles - leader Chris Hedley
15 members came on this sultry late September evening with fantastic views over the Thames with the late sun illuminating the riverside buildings when crossing on the platform at Blackfriars station, which straddles the river. We then had a fascinating walk to the lively Hoxton streets via St Paul's, Smithfield, Leather Lane, Farringdon, Clerkenwell, Exmouth Market, Finsbury, St Luke's, Old Street, and Shoreditch, showing off London at its best.
