West Dulwich to Ladywell and you don't have to be a Spurs fan! - this week's walking with London LDWA

West Dulwich to Ladywell and you don't have to be a Spurs fan! - this week's walking with London LDWA
The Long Distance Walkers Association

Two lovely walks on offer this week. On Wednesday, Aysen leads an exploration of the leafier parts of South London, perfect for a balmy summer evening. Saturday sees a return to The Spurs Way, featuring the Lee Valley Walk and a special guest as co-leader. You don't have to be a Spurs fan to enjoy it, but if you are then you'll be pleased to know we pass the training ground at Hotspur Way, giving an opportunity briefly to breathe the same air as England captain Harry Kane and captain of France Hugo Lloris. Scroll down for full details.

 

Wanted - replacement leader

Owing to injury, Colin Saunders has had to step down as leader of the 17-mile Wandle Trail walk on Sunday September 16th, and is seeking a substitute. The walk is part of the Wandle Fortnight and will be an opportunity to recruit new members. Colin will provide info and make all the necessary arrangements, as well as act as a 'roving marshal' on the day. You can contact him at cswriter@btinternet.com .

The Spurs Way 2018

spurs way 2018 walk

Brightness falls from the air

Kings have died young and fair

 

This is a special walk because it takes place on the 54th anniversary of the death of Spurs Double-winning footballer John White, killed by lightning on Crews Hill golf course while sheltering from a thunderstorm on July 21st 1964. His son, Rob, will be co-leader, and  we will be stopping briefly on our way across Crews Hill golf course to pay our respects.
