Outside Boots (pharmacy and shop) in Paddington station
Unit 51 Paddington Station Concourse
This walk is mud free for at least 90% of the route! It is also the next event of the Dyna-Mates meetup, so you might bump into Non-LEC members. We will set off at 1.20 pm at the latest. Late comers can catch up with us on the way, we will bring our mobiles.
Let's meet for a leisurely stroll North West along the Grand Union Canal (Paddington Branch). The walk offers a variety of sights such as Little Venice, more industrial areas and it culminates in lovely countryside at Horsenden Hill. Those who fancy can climb the hill and will be rewarded with a view over London. We aim to cover 8 -10 miles depending on the groups fitness.
If you like, bring along a piece of poetry, a newspaper article, song lyrics or another text. Bring something you like or have felt intrigued by, minimum 3 words max. 250 words.
We will stop on the way and everyone can read aloud their input for everyone to hear. This is entirely optional, so don't feel obliged to come up with something. The idea is to share something inspiring.
We stop a couple of times en route and at the pub at the end of the walk near Greenford station (Central line, but no rail service to Paddington on Sunday). There's options to end the walk beforehand, e.g. at Alperton or, near Horsenden Hill, at Perivale (Central line). Bring a packed lunch.
Looking forward to seeing you soon!
Travel information: there are planned closures on the overground, DLR and tube including Piccadilly, District line. Central line runs a good service.
