Walk Report

The City by Night, Tuesday 1st November 2016
20 walkers, 7 miles - leader Ron Williamson
The peace of a Tuesday evening on the Liverpool Street station concourse at peak commuter time was destroyed when twenty excited LDWA members gathered for the start of their exploration of the City.
Their trust in the leader was exemplary, although perhaps somewhat foolhardy, as we ducked and dived through various lanes and alleys, invaded grand office buildings, circumvented road works and building sites, climbed many a step and eluded countless unwavering cyclists.
One member had to leave after 5 miles and when Keith, of all people, announced he had had enough after 2 hours it seemed that the assignment had failed.
Thanks to the resolute determination of the remaining 18, however, mission was accomplished when Liverpool Street station, or more appropriately for some Wetherspoons, was reached in true railway fashion on time after seven gruelling miles at 8.30 pm
