Walk Report

Hendon Hobble, Sunday 4th December 2016
19 walkers, 15 miles - leader Dave Williams
15 ,15.5, 15.75 or nearly 16 miles? Oh let's call it 17 miles.
Despite extensive travel problems on the day 19 brave souls made it to the start at Hendon.
On a bright, crisp day we finally set off some 30 minutes late on a surprisingly rural walk considering its urban location.
There were no disasters to report apart from at the lunch stop at The Griffin pub in Totteridge where one poor soul had the misfortune to be served the smallest portion of apple crumble ever witnessed (unfortunately there is no photographic evidence to corroborate the claim!).
Otherwise the walk proceeded with one walker losing the Group only to reappear later on, having claimed he became detached at a comfort stop, a very spurious claim!
Due to the leader's incompetence yet again, the walk turned out to be just over 15 miles rather than the 18 advertised for which I offer profuse apologies!
