A walk up the Regents Canal,10th Sept.

I've had a few possibles for this but thought I'd raise it as a new thread.

Start around St Pancras and then a walk up the Regents canal to Camden market and beyond if you have the energy.

Other possibilities on this original post.

http://e-group.uk.net/forum/showthread.php?t=14755

I intend to check out somewhere to meet next Saturday but would be interested in numbers by then to see if it's worthwhile.

Let me know.

I was thinking to meet around 09:00-09:30 if that's not to early.In the past on other meetings people start to drift away mid-afternoon but nothings fixed.

You can make of it what you want really.

Hope you can make it.

Re: A walk up the Regents Canal,10th Sept.

I now have the necessary permission from SWMBO so I'm up for it! If the walking becomes a problem for me I'll bale out along the way, I'll just have to see how I am on the day!

Looking forward to the day.

Re: A walk up the Regents Canal,10th Sept.

Unfortunately going to be at the other end of the country otherwise I would have been there. Done this with one of those walking tours a few years back. There are some good photo ops. Hope the weather is optimal

Re: A walk up the Regents Canal,10th Sept.

I went for a little walk around the start point this morning.

I propose we meet in the Cafe Da-Vinci in Grays Inn Rd(see map on URL below)

http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?q=st+p...6&vpsrc=6&z=18

I had a blowout breakfast for about 5.00 this morning.It's in the middle of the map marked Da-Vinci coffee.
Is every OK for a start between 09;00 and 09:30?

So far I have confirmation from

Barr1e and Ann1e,Ian,Zuiko(John Perriment) and myself.
Interest from Graham of Rainham and Jon Shick,if you can confirm.

Anymore?

I think the route that will work will be along the front of St Pancras and then through the station to see the architecture.Just north of the station is St Pancras Old church and church yard which was used by the Beatles for a photoshoot for the White Album I think.
Under the railway aches to Camley Nature park.This morning here the was a family of 6 newly fledged Backbirds and also a free pond dipping pool where I found some Newts.

After that there's St Pancras lock and basin.
One shot from this morning to get you in the mood.



Two barges pass at the lock while a Eurostar arrives in the background.

That's as far as I went this morning but it's about a mile up to Camden lock and Market.
Plenty of seats along the way for our tired old legs.

I'll PM my mobile number to you next Friday.

See you in the cafe.

Just hope we get the weather.
