Island Gardens to Waterloo

Jane Rosoux reports...

"I attach a few photographs taken on Sunday's 7 mile walk along the Gerald Colton Way Extension from Island Gardens to Waterloo led by Robin Midwinter. Disappointingly there were only four present at the start. It is possible that others were put off by engineering works on the DLR and on other lines but they missed an interesting walk in good weather which had brought out the crowds.

Robin started off along the Thames Path then headed for Mudchute Farm before making for Canary Wharf by an indirect route.

He then headed for The Thames, passing the statue (pictured below)

to follow the North Bank Thames Path to Wapping and the lunch stop at the 'Town of Ramsgate'.

Here I joined the party to make it five, having set out too late, gone to Canary Wharf and then wrongly guessed the route between there and Island Gardens. We crossed to the South Bank of The Thames via Tower Bridge...

The final image shows a skeleton sitting on a wall - perhaps getting ready to jump on Hallowe'en?"
