Walk Report

Westminster - Clerkenwell, Thursday 28th July 2011
34 walkers, 8 miles - leader Dave Williams
Proof that these Summer Evening Walks have become a victim of their own success was borne out with no less than 34 turning up on a bright & sunny evening for a wander through our great metropolis. Many had been lured along with the promise of taking in many of the delights but they were to be sadly disillusioned as there were precious few of these to savour! We had hoped to see the inhabitants of the Vauxhall City Farm but by the time we reached there the shutters were firmly up & all there was to see was a concrete cow. Nevertheless we pressed on regardless and reached The Imperial War Museum where we paused in The Buddhist Memorial Garden. After more pavement pounding we reached The South Bank where some of our number succumbed to the temptations on offer & some more to natural wastage! However the majority pressed onto reach The Seckforde Arms where we took over the former pub of the year to enjoy a well-deserved pint and some post-walk sustenance.
