This walk is one of a series taken over several years by ICE along the Thames Towpath from Hampton Court to the Thames Barrier via Richmond, Putney, Waterloo and Greenwich. The distance will be about 8 miles, 5.5 miles before lunch and 2.5 miles afterwards. The walk is on flat terrain, and will follow the Thames Towpath from Waterloo to Greenwich.

The walk will follow the Thames Path downstream past various historic locations including the Globe Theatre and City Hall until we reach Tower Bridge. At this point the character of the environment changes and it becomes less affluent. We pass through Bermondsey and Rotherhithe, with the Brunel Museum continuing past the site of the slipway for the Great Eastern on the opposite bank until we arrive in Deptford for lunch. After lunch, the walk continues to Greenwich where the walk will end. Walkers will have the opportunity to visit some of the exhibits at this historic location.

Lunch will be at the Ship and Whale pub at about 1.00 pm. Please see below for menu.

Please book by email to Tony Barber: [email protected] with the information listed below.

You will receive an email to acknowledge your place on the walk and your place is not confirmed until that is done.

Since places are limited, please be sure to inform me immediately if you are unable to take up a reserved place.

We are having to complete a risk assessment for the walk, and some of the risks of course relate to Covid-19. To save having to repeat messages at the beginning of the walk, please note the following points:

• You may only join the walk if you have pre-booked with the leader. You will be turned away if you have not booked;
• If possible, please do not share transport to the start of the walk;
• Please maintain social distancing while on the walk. At any stiles or kissing gates, please touch them as little as possible and keep your distance from the person ahead of you;
• Please carry and use your own hand sanitiser. You may want to carry a face mask in case of any incident, but you do not need to wear it while walking;
• Do not share drink, food or equipment.

We have all become used to these restrictions in our own lives over the past months, so hopefully it will not be an onerous task for us to comply with them on our group walks.
