Walk London: two in Lea Valley

This morning I walked in lovely sunshine from Ponders End To Clapton Common.

This was to check out the route for next Saturday (26 September) when I shall be leading a Walk London walk.

It starts at Ponders End Station at 11.15am. We shall walk south from Wright’s four mill stopping at Pickett’s Lock. We shall have a proper pause for food and toilets at the far end of Tottenham Marsh.

The end is a mile walk along Walthamstow Marsh with a stop to remember AV Roe’s pioneer flight a century ago. Officially it’s just under six miles. Hope to be at Clapton before 2pm.

On Sunday I shall be at Bromley-by-Bow Station at 1.30pm for a ramble down the River Lea to its mouth. There is a bit of doubling back and grim streets but there are also some good views. We shall visit the light house too.

For those who still have energy there is a final stretch down the east side of the Isle of Dogs to Greenwich.

It’s 5 miles but I am not sure how long we shall take.

Walk London is on Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 September. All walks are free.
