IMPORTANT CHANGE TO STARTING POINT
There is no service on the District and Circle lines on Sunday, which makes Tower Hill an awkward starting point for many people (including me!). I am therefore moving the start to Bermondsey Underground Station as this is on the Jubilee Line, which is working fine. It will make the walk a little bit longer, but with the bonus of some extra time walking along the river before crossing Tower Bridge. We will still be stopping in in Wapping at the Prospect of Whitby as a part way stop. Hopefully the rain will stop or at least not be too bad for our walk.
The start time of the walk is now 1.20 pm rather than 1.30 (I'll still be there from 1 or just before) - just bringing it forward by 10 minutes to account in part for the slightly longer walk. We will leave promptly at that time and I will not be able to take calls/texts after that time. If you need to call or text before then my number is 07794 017227.
If you are a little bit late you may still be able to catch us up. Come out of Bermondsey Underground station, cross the road, turn left, turn right up Bevington Street, left up Chambers Street, right up George Row, left up Bermonsey Wall W.
I will expect us to finish up on Whitechapel High Street around[masked]pm, and those that want to can come for a drink afterwards. Although there is no service from Aldgate East westwards, Liverpool Street is not far away or there are plenty of buses into the City, Old Street, or West End from the finish point.
A shortish wander, repeating a walk we did a couple of years ago, past the Tower of London, Tower Bridge, St Katherine Docks, Wapping High Street (some of this along the Thames Path), and then back via Shadwell Basin, the ornamental canal behind Wapping and Wapping Woods, and finishing at Aldgate East via Cable Street. The walk is around 4 miles. We will have a half way stop in Wapping and a pub stop at the end as well.
Note this is meeting from 1.00 for a 1.20 pm start promptly. There is a £1 per person organizer fee - payable to me on the day to help cover my meetup organizer fees.
