Walk Report

Woolwich to Deptford, Wednesday 24th June 2009
10 walkers, 7.3 miles - leaders Nick Marshall & Judith Griffiths
We had 8 people on our summer evening walk. It was a beautiful evening, but maybe the place names Woolwich and Deptford put people off! We did have to go through some grotty areas because part of the Thames Path is closed for safety reasons while some flats are being built. But we also went through parks and along the river by the Thames Barrier, ending up at the Dog and Bell pub in Deptford, which seemed to be appreciated by everyone.
