Walk Report

Secret History of Spurs, Wednesday 12th April 2017
6 walkers, 6 miles - leader Julie Welch
Six of us met at Tottenham Hale tube station for a stroll round some of the sites associated with Tottenham Hotspur, including the first pitch on which they played in 1882, and the Milford Tavern, a now defunct pub where the players changed before and after matches. Among our number was film-maker Jamie Hearing, who is making a documentary about people who walk LDWA Hundreds, so we were able to help him with anecdotes and background information. We also looked at Spurs monumental new stadium, still taking shape, before stopping for refreshments at the Antwerp Arms, where they do a very nice pint of Hopspur ale.
