Get out your buckets and spades, then do the Lambeth Walk  - this week with  for London LDWA,

Two good 'uns this week, starting on Tuesday with an awayday featuring Cromer and the lovely surroundings of North Norfolk. I was going to suggest bringing your bucket and spade but bearing in mind the current weather an unbrella might be a better idea. Then on Saturday you don't have to travel so far, just to Streatham Common for a fascinating tour of the borough of Lambeth north to south, featuring parks, plaques, lost rivers and a cemetery. All the details below, including an advance notice of a jaunt from HIghgate to Clerkenwell next Monday evening.
