I have been on the towpath alongside the Olympic park today in preparation for leading the walk this Saturday 30 January.
One of the weekend Walk London routes is ‘The Lower Lee Valley: Hackney Wick to Limehouse Station’.
The Greenway will be open for us to look at progress on the stadium and the swimming pool. Open on the path now is the Olympic View Tube where we can stop for refreshments, toilets and the view. This is a little visited spot so it will be good to be there ahead of crowds.
After the future we shall see the past in the form of the tide mill at Three Mills.
The walk is about five miles although there is no need to do it all.
Meet at 1pm on Saturday outside Hackney Wick Station. This is one stop from Stratford.
No charges. It’s a TfL initiative to get us walking.
Hope to see lots of you there.
