February Meeting Walk Report

London Group 10 walked the amazingly diverse area of Brixton today.
We found one of only two working windmills in London, the Ritz Cinema, the 2nd oldest picture house in London originally called The Electric Pavilion Cinema.
The Electric Brixton formally known as the Bridge famous for starting the careers of The Pet Shop Boys, Boy George and The Eurythmics.
Brockwell Park with its Lido, still operational but a little cold for a dip today.
From high up on the hill we had views of Battersea Power Station and City Skyscrapers such as the Shard and Canary Wharf.
Along Railton Road famous for race riots and also the start of the gay movement.
Along Coldharbour Lane and the Walton Lodge Sanitary Steam Laundry Building.
Finishing at Brixton Village and Granville Arcade with small shops serving meat such as Goat and Pig Trotters and a myriad of Fish, colourful materials and vegetables from around the world.
On returning to the City a late lunch at The Cross Keys a, Wetherspoons Pub in Gracechurch Street.
