Walk Report

The City at Night, Tuesday 19th November 2019
17 walkers, 6 miles - leader Ron Williamson
A perfect day to unwind in the cool of an Autumn evening as 17 members and friends enjoyed some of the many facets of the capital.
Through dark and gloomy ancient alleyways to the bright spacious passage ways of the towering office blocks, the unloved litter-strewn lanes of Aldgate to the impeccably maintained courtyards of the nearby former warehouses of the East Indian Co, the all-embracing view from a roof top of the modern city to the reminder of its past as we walked through the Roman Wall.
Always a good way to spend a few hours and thanks to the LDWA for the providing the motivation necessary to set us on our way.
As is often the case on such walks some members opted to finish at places more convenient for their homeward journey, the leader received three messages from walkers that others had left the walk, but unfortunately could not be certain who they were referring to as no names were mentioned, hopefully this accounted for the two missing at the next number check. After a short wait and a walk back to the previous junction the decision was taken to carry on, hopefully nobody was deserted and abandoned.
