Walk Report

St Paul's to Greenwich, Thursday 24th May 2018
14 walkers, 7 miles - leader Paul Tilley
On Thursday evening 14 members started from St. Paul's at the appointed hour and all were delivered safely and in good order to Greenwich in 2.25 hours. En route they enjoyed views of the Thames and the Docks, not least the view from Island Gardens to the Royal Naval College, thought by some to be the finest view in London.
They visited Mudshute Farm with its animals, were enchanted by the llamas and pigs. Although in places there were stinging nettles to contend with, there was no whingeing. The weather was clement and the natives friendly. Passing under the foot tunnel to the South Bank the party reached Greenwich where the walk officially ended. Some made their ways to their respective homes, others led by Dave, who was on autopilot, headed at a much quickened pace to Wetherspoons. There the leader was toasted and the party set to with hearty appetite to do justice to Thursday curry evening (although unfortunately the curry ran out before all had ordered).
