London LOOP – Gordon Hill to Cockfosters

Our final leg of the London LOOP walk. The path totals 154 miles. It has taken us 3 years to complete it, there are 18 sections, and we’ve been doing 1/2 a section each month. Now we can finally say that we’ve completed all of them. We have been doing the LOOP anticlockwise. Normally it is done clockwise, but the group we were with (London Apreciation Society) have did it 10 years ago the right way around, so this time they wanted to do it the other way for variety.

Below are some pictures of our final section, Gordon Hill to Cockfosters. There are some Infrared pictures, just because I like the difference it makes.

London LOOP – Havering Att Bower to Chigwell

Another LOOP walk, without the LAS group as they have been walking mid week as there have been so much disruption on the rail these days with weekend works. We drove round there, and did the walk on our own. Fantastic day, sunny, blue skies and pretty dry paths, with little mud around. Even met Daisy the cow. :o) If you think some of the colours have gone a bit wierd one a few of these pictures, that’s because I took two cameras, one was converted to Infrared, so those colours are in a different colour spectrum.

Muchelney Abbey, The Church of St Peter and St Paul, and the Priests House

While in Somerset, we had a little trip to Langport to see Muchelney Abbey. Interesting ruins of an abbey destroyed by the king. Then next door to that was a tiny little church to look around. Finally there was the Priest’s house that was across the road.

Tower Lifeboat Station – RNLI

The London Appreciation Society had the chance to visit the RNLI Tower Lifeboat Station today. Lovely day, with blue skies, so an ideal day for it. This was very interesting, and good to know that they are completely supported by donations, not a single penny comes from the Government, a very worthy charity, that Saves Lives at Sea… and on the Thames.
