Well! We did it. The Trial Run Walk has now already taken place, so the LWG seal is now broken.
(Lots of puddles like this along the way)
(Josiah, Andrea and Lou-bear waiting for Jenny B)
(Long boats, Barges and Boats)
(Bridge that leads to Enfield Island Village)
(Jenny B, Josiah, Oliver and Louby-lou)
(Boats along the River Lea)
(Industrial Estates found along the way)
And it was just nice to spend time with someone, walking and talking and relaxing. And feeling that you are doing something good for body, spirit and soul.
Can't wait for next Sunday where we will be doing the same, but for longer...hope to see you then!
(Bye Bye Jenny! See you next Sunday...)

So please do join us! We will be meeting at 11am at Waltham Cross station and ending up at either Ponders End or Tottenham Hale - depending on time. As this is a trial run, we don't mind too much not completing the 2nd leg - Ponders End to Tottenham Hale - which is a further 4 miles.
It would be fantastic if others turn up, it should be fun and I am certainly looking forward to it!
Blog and photos to follow once it has been done!

Suggested things to bring ~ hiking or walking shoes/boots, warm clothes, water to drink, snacks, a dog or two, camera and your enthusiasm!
This one is quite a long walk, but there are lots of transport points if you want to complete a smaller section of the walk.
We will meet at 11am, with no idea at all what time we will get to the end! We will find a pub in Falconwood to have lunch or drinks.
Start: Woolwich Foot Tunnel (TQ432792)
Finish: Falconwood (TQ440753)
Distance: 7 miles ( 11.2 km)
Public transport and breakpoints:
Free ferry from North Woolwich
Rail: Woolwich Arsenal, Woolwich Dockyard, Falconwood
Buses: at rail stations and at Thorntree Road, Charlton Village and Shooters Hill
Time to dust off those hiking/walking boots, probably bought with good intentions a couple of years ago, and put them to actual use instead of simply admiring them as they sit there in your shoe cupboard.
Come on, you know you want to!
These are the London Walks that we will be tackling each and every Sunday, walking them in the sizeable chunks recommended:
The Capital Ring
The London Loop
Green Chain Walk
Jubileee Walk way
Lea Valley Walk
Join us on one, some or all Sundays to complete each of these walks. We will meet at 11am at a specific point of each walk to complete each section of whichever walk currently being undertaken.
The aim is to end up somewhere for a pub lunch, or drink, at the end of the section.
Sign up to this blog or search on facebook for London Walkers Group for information of where to next meet and we will endevour to find the address of a pub to aim for.
Sign up to this blog to read about and view photos of the walks already taken.
Bring dogs, kids, lodgers and any aliens you might have lurking around. Everyone is welcome to join us!
