LONDON REVISITED Outing

Where: GUIDED WALK around PIMLICO and parts of WESTMINSTER, headed by GEORGE MARTIN
As a result of the excessive demand for the earlier walk on Wednesday 26 September, which was fully subscribed on 6 September, George has agreed to repeat this walk on Tuesday 30 October.
Pimlico is known for its gardens and Regency Architecture. In its heart there is a grid of residential streets originally laid out by Thomas Corbitt around 1825. There are over 350 grade 2 listed buildings and numerous grade 2 listed churches. The walk will take about 2.5 hours but there will be a midway stop for tea/coffee & comfort break at Tate Britain.

When: Tuesday 30 October

Cost: Free

Number: max of 20

Travel: Meet at Ealing Broadway station waiting room for a 09.30am departure by District line to Victoria.

LONDON REVISITED - Additional outing

Where: WORSHIPFUL GUILD OF MERCHANT TAYLORS COMPANY, THREADNEEDLE STREET, EC2
As a result of great demand and to satisfy many members, arrangements have been made for a additional visit to the above Guild. It will be a guided tour of this externally understated building but with a magnificent and surprising interior. The guild was granted its charter and recognized by Henry VII in 1503 and the many rooms have beautiful furnishings and furniture including a charming library overlooking a secluded private garden. We will be provided tea/coffee and biscuits at the start of the tour in the central passageway which overlooks the garden.

When: Wednesday 31 October

Cost: £6 pp

Numbers: 20 - but can be increased to 25 if required

Travel: To fit into the guilds prior arrangements that afternoon, we need to be at their premises for a 10.00 or as near as possible start and the tour will end about 12.00. I therefore propose to leave Ealing Broadway Station waiting room at 9.00 or as near as possible by Central Line to Bank with a 5 min. walk to 30 Threadneedle Street.

I will announce this outing on 18 and 25 October and will also take names/monies on those days.
