Walk Report

Eastern Delights, Thursday 29th July 2010
21 walkers, 9 miles - leader Dave Williams
No-one was more surprised than me to see 20 gullible souls (a record for an evening walk!) turn up at Walthamstow Central. Perhaps they had been lured by the exotic title of the walk. Sadly however they were to be quickly disillusioned for there were to be no delights or indeed anything else of any interest apart from having to scramble under the world's lowest railway bridge! The walk proceeded without any mishaps across Walthamstow marshes & wended its way through the fleshpots of Clapton, Hackney & Shoreditch before ending up at Liverpool Street where the group were greeted by some exotic dancing (which I had gone to great lengths to arrange!). However no-one could be persuaded to join in so we adjourned to a local hostelry, The Gun. Chris D.'s eyes immediately lit up when he informed us that this was the venue where in past times young ladies used to perform some dubious entertainment. He claimed however that he himself had never ventured here before but no-one really believed him!!
