Hills of the North 2019, Tuesday 21st May 2019
19 walkers, 16 miles - leader Ron Williamson
This is one of my favourite London walks made extra special by the 18 members who were able to join me on a glorious spring day. We were privileged to be joined by one of our newest members Carolyn (no. 44299) on her first walk with the LDWA and Joy (no 10) whose memories go back to the very beginnings of our organisation.
A visit at the very start to the roof garden at 120 Fenchurch St with its stunning view over the City set the precedent for the remainder of the day as our effort were rewarded with sweeping vistas from Primrose Hill, Parliament Hill, Highgate and Alexandra Palace.
A very busy day visiting The Royal Exchange (posh loos), Guildhall Art Gallery, Roman Amphitheatre, and the Metropolitan Achieves with time for the mandatory coffee and lunch breaks and even afternoon tea in the sunshine at Ally Pally.
Thanks to all who came for contributing to a most enjoyable day.
See you next year!
