On Saturday 4th of April 2009 ten people and three dogs walked from North Woolwich to Bostall Heath. A varied walk, beginning with either a spiral staircase or a lift to access the Woolwich foot tunnel beneath the Thames. Then eastwards along the Thames Path past the Woolwich Arsenal site to Thamesmead. Southwards from the river, and along the canals and past the lakes of Thamesmead to eventually head uphill past Lesnes Abbey, through the daffodil woods and to spend a little time searching for sharks' teeth in the sand.

efog    More confusion - this time about the distances marked on the Thames-side sculpture

efog    The sculpture had distances via the Cycle network to various destinations in the UK. The distances looked a bit fishy to me.
