Walk Report

South of the River, Tuesday 22nd January 2019
18 walkers, 13 miles – leader Ron Williamson
Today’s walk objective was to explore the area south of the Thames no more than 1.6 miles from Tower Bridge.
After 13 miles and visiting some 60 points of interest, time and the deteriorating weather finally forced us to abandon our meanderings, leaving 12 locations on our planned route to visit on another day.
In such a small area there proved to be a wealth of historical and cultural interest and we had deliberately avoided many of the more well-known sites.
Examine www.exploringsouthwark.co.uk and plan your own walk. What about 20 miles and 100 points of interest in the same area without using the same stretch of road twice or crossing your path?
You will not be disappointed when you walk it, legs and feet will be O.K. but the mind might be disorientated. P.S. Use of maps (paper or digital) during walk prohibited.
