SUMMARY

Our walk this month will take us from Stratford Station through the Westfield Shopping Centre to the Olympic Park and back to Westfield for lunch.

MEET AT the cafe at the end of the Jubilee line platforms inside(**) Stratford station at 0945. 

DETAILS  Leaving the station we will cross over the railway using the pedestrian bridge which has interesting reflective panels.  At the other end we will follow the direction signs to the Olympic Park.  There are many interesting views and buildings to photograph, with (modern) architectural shapes, lines, colour and, of course, people!

Our mid-walk meet-up point will be between 11:00 and 11.30 at Prets on the corner of Strafford Walk and Turing Street opposite the Olympic Park Information Centre.

From there we will continue our walk through the Olympic Park and see the ArcelorMittal Orbit tower, the former Olympic Stadium (now rechristened the London Stadium or West Ham Football Ground!), the River Lee / River Lee Navigation and the landscaped gardens.

We will meet up again for lunch at about 1330 – 1400 at a location to be advised on the day.

(**) If you are not travelling to Strafford by Jubilee Line, DLR, Rail or Overground, pleased email me (davidhicksuk@aol.com) and I’ll arrange to meet you outside the station.

Come and enjoy the walk, David (07917302747)
