Walk Report

Hidden London, Wednesday 10th August 2011
23 walkers, 7 miles - leader Susanne Waldschmidt
A beautiful evening which bought out 23 LDWA members. The tour of the National Gallery added an extra mile to the walk! Amazingly enough there are quite a few paintings in the Gallery with a walking theme, including the superb Renaissance painting 'The Walk to Emmaus' where the three subjects look as though they have just completed a 100. We then walked via St James Park and the river to hit the backstreets and alleys north of the river before finishing at the Dickens Inn in St Katherine's Dock. It was good to have Peter and Hilary Saw join us. Big apologies to the four people I missed before the gallery tour. There clearly are a lot of culture vultures in London LDWA so I will try and repeat this tour next summer specially for those who missed out.
