I take pleasure in passing on this report from Michael Way, who co-led this walk with Olga Way last Sunday.
"Ten of us including members from Finchley, Amersham and Richmond,braved a
quite ghastly day for the 7 - 1/2 Thames-side walk from Gravesend on Sunday Nov 14.
"It started drizzly, brightened a little at lunchtime, then poured down all
afternoon . Everyone seemed to enjoy it, even the lady in shoes.
"Picture 1 shows some of us at Gravesend Pier, the oldest wrought-iron pier
in the world;
"Pictures 2 and 3 are at the 19th century fort on the Thames built
(successfully) to keep Napoleon out....
"and Picture 4, some graceful scenes as
we clamber over a fallen tree completely blocking the path...
"I have reported it it (with this picture) to Kent County Council.
"There are by the way lots of trains to Gravesend and back on Sundays.
"Michael and Olga Way".
Many Thanks Michael
