Friday the 24th of July saw another of the events held to commemorate the 25th Anniversary of the Hampstead Group. This short walk led by Robin Midwinter, from Woodside Park to Totteridge, both stations on the Northern Line, was a re-creation of the first walk ever taken by the Hampstead Group back in 1984.
Jane Rosoux reports...
"12 of us set out from Woodside Park Station soon after 7.00 pm.
There had been recent showers which no doubt deterred other potential participants but there was no rain during the walk and there were even glimpses of the sun.
Robin had devised a route as close as he could to Gerald Colton's original and by the time we arrived at 'The Orange Tree' pub for a celebratory drink two hours later we had covered around 5 miles and had been intoduced to many of the most attractive areas of Totteridge. We were also fortunate to pass a cricket match in progress and to see a quite impressive sunset."
