Shadwell to Canada Water – Sat 29 Jan
Please meet at Shadwell DLR for a 10 a.m. start. Travel at the back of a DLR service from Bank/Tower Gateway for the correct exit from the station. If you use the Overground to Shadwell, please join us at the DLR station across the road. Note: there is no Northern line service at Bank.
For early arrivals, there is a café under the arches at Shadwell DLR.
When I checked out the route a week ago, Mudchute Farm & Park lived up to the first part of its name. The lifts at both ends of the Greenwich foot tunnel were closed. There are about 90 steps. Anyone who feels unable to manage the steps or feels uncomfortable walking through the tunnel can take the DLR from Island Gardens to Cutty Sark and re-join us in Greenwich for lunch.
Lunch is at the Old Brewery in the grounds of the Old Royal Naval College https://www.oldbrewerygreenwich.com/
Please let me know not later than Wednesday evening if you would like lunch as I have to advise numbers on Thursday morning. (Non-members please contact firstname.lastname@example.org). For those who prefer to bring a picnic, there are lots of benches in the grounds of the College and an opportunity to come in for a drink and facilities.
I look forward to seeing you on the walk.
