London Group 10
This group is led by Peter Shaw & Brian Lewis. It will meet on the 4th Thursday monthly. All meetings will be at a London venue.
This month London Group 10 enjoyed a walk around the Chelsea area of London.
Starting with coffee and buns at the Café at The Royal Hospital Chelsea we toured the buildings and grounds of the Hospital managing to look around the dining room which suddenly becomes full of Chelsea Pensioners at 12.00 lunch.
It like a room straight out of Hogwarts with bench tables and chairs in rows. Amazing history of all the battles and dates adorned the wall panels.
We then entered the chapel with its amazing ceiling above the altar.
From there we walked along many of the back roads and down to Cheyne Walk and then up to the Worlds End Estate. The name is taken from the Worlds End Inn. There was some modern social housing and the small Chelsea Theatre.
We then followed the Kings Road and managed to enter the Moravian Cemetery after talking to the husband of the vicar, who opened the gate for us.
We finished back at Sloane Square and a light lunch at the Peter Jones store before returning to Tower Hill.
