Hills and Downs of the North - this week with London LDWA

Hills and Downs of the North - this week with London LDWA
The Long Distance Walkers Association

In case you missed last week's STOP PRESS email, Ron's popular morning-and-afternoon combo Hills of the North undergoes a repeat tomorrow (Tuesday). Warning: may contain Wetherspoons. And at the weekend, those of you not helping out on (or walking - good luck!) the Hadrian Hundred are welcome to help Lonica complete the North Downs Way. There's a choice of distances and days, or do all three. Scroll down for the details. 

 

Social event coming up!

How about a midweek day-time walk followed by a spot of pub theatre? A Flat Out Walk on Wednesday June 5th goes from Kensington to London's highest theatre, the Gatehouse, Highgate and the first night of the farce Flat Out. Plenty of options are available for this event - you can do the walk (11.5 miles, mainly along the Capital Challenge route) and skip the theatre, enjoy a pre-theatre dinner at the pub or bring a picnic supper, skip the walk and see the play or do both. All the details on our website.
