on informality. In summer the walks usually begin at about 2.00 p.m. and in
winter at 1.15 p.m. They normally last about a couple of hours, or so, usually
finishing at a convenient pub. (The pub attendance is not compulsory!)
Typically 30 plus people attend these walks.
Walks normally start and finish near an
Underground, Overground, DLR, or Rail station, though very occasionally a short
bus journey may be involved.
