I'll be running it on Sunday 4th, starting at 11am at Lambeth North tube station. In case anyone wants to try it at any other time, the full & zoomable / printable version of the images below, which are designed as a sort of 'interesting features' flyer, is on Picasa. The walk's just under 8 miles long, and includes an interesting couple of pubs in the quieter second half (East of London Bridge).

London walk - lesser known features of London's South Bank
Way back, I decided to plot out and lead a walk - for wither the Metropolitan Walkers or the Capital Walkers - which was of a sort of medium length, and with some of the useless London urban trivia that I know far too much of. Quite some time passed, but at last - here it is! A relaxed walk south of the river, generally avoiding the tourist trail and stopping to see some of the, ahem, "lesser-known landmarks" of the area, which is a sort of code for the kind of thing I find interesting and pretty much no-one else does. It includes a short (costing just over £3) ferry trip to get across the river to Canary Wharf the river at the end of the walk.
