London Ramble: Bethnal Green to Charing Cross

Here is Jane's report of Robin Midwinter's walk last Wednesday (April 22nd) from Bethnal Green to Charing Cross...

Robin "...had 14 participants until the lunch stop at the Anchor & Hope pub, Southwark

when 4 dropped out.

The total distance was more like 10 miles than the advertised 8. It was a beautiful day!!

and there were lots of people about enjoying the sunshine.

The group photograph (with half of Robin, extreme right)

was taken after people had left the party.

At Limehouse Basin we were fortunate to see the road bridge on the Thames frontage swing to one side to let a yacht pass...

The route took us into Victoria Park, along the Regent's Canal to Limehouse Basin, along the Thames Path to Westminster Bridge, past the Houses of Parliament (where there were an awful lot of police about, presumably because of the budget) then through Green Park to the Mall and Charing Cross Station.

The image below shows the drained lake in Green Park partly refilled but with the pipe supplying the water from the Westbourne (the Tyburn water has always been considered too polluted) still standing proud

The final image is of a colourful flower bed by the Mall.
