Walk Report

Walthamstow Wander, Sunday 19th February 2017
21 walkers, 19 miles - leader Dave Williams
19 of us assembled at Walthamstow for a quite urban but mud-free saunter.
There was plenty to keep the walkers interested including the famous Middlesex Filter Beds, the first few miles of the 2012 "100", and a couple of Victorian chimneys!
To the leader's immense relief the Wetherspoon's at Canary Wharf had re-opened after it's refurbishment for our lunch stop, although apart from a lick of paint it was hard to work out what exactly had been refurbished!
A couple of the less hardy souls departed but we were joined by a couple of part-time walkers & a pleasant amble along the Thames with the undoubted highlight of the day, the ascent of Stave Hill being accomplished with the magnificent views it afforded from the summit! A majority departed at London Bridge, with just 6 making it to the end at Liverpool Street, where 3 of us adjourned to the Wetherspoons for a well-earned pint or two!
