Walk Report

New Year Hangover Buster, Wednesday 1st January 2020
36 walkers, 11 miles - leader Susanne Waldschmidt
The gloom of the grey morning skies was dispelled by the appearance of a large and jolly band of walkers at the Monument. All 36 of them.
We explored Roman Walls, walked past over 40 City churches, admired the works of art scattered around the city, tramped through endless alleyways without anyone getting lost.
It was nice to hear from LDWA members, who thought they knew the City well, that they had discovered many corners that they knew nothing about.
With the very large group size the pace was somewhat slower than on a standard walk, with an impressive average speed of 2 mph. Nobody seemed in a great hurry though and we managed to finish around 1630.
