Walk Report

Gordon's Mystery Walk, Wednesday 29th August 2018
12 walkers, 7 miles - leader Gordon Parker
Liverpool Street station to Mile End along the River Thames
On a pleasant evening following heavy rain this was an urban ramble through at least 800 years of history via Aldgate to a view of Tower Bridge (the river Thames ,of course, has been there much longer than 800 years!) with the setting sun centrally placed for maximum dramatic effect. Then through Wapping, Shadwell and Limehouse with a grave finale in Tower Hamlets Cemetery, where you can almost imagine you are in a Dark Sky location!
