Bleeding London - First Meet-Up

29 March 2014

Region: London

As Bleeding London enters its 4th week, we’ve decided to have a meet up to see if there’s any truth in the ‘persistent, and persistently unsubstantiated rumour ... that there is a trap street on every page of the London A-Z’ (Frank Jacobs).

  • Date:  Sunday 6th April
  • Time:  14:00
  • Venue:  1 Aylesford Street, Pimlico, SW1V 3RY

Aim:  To cover one page of the A-Z, between us, and report back with our findings. 

We’ll divide the page into different routes, so small groups of walkers can cover different sections.

What you need to do

  • Email us at to confirm your involvement.
  • Turn up between 13:30 and 14:00.
  • Bring a camera (or phone), an A to Z – app or map (although we have a number of spares, just in case) and a travel card (for the outer reaches).
  • Collect your route instructions from our route master.
  • Follow your route and collect a photograph from each street.
  • Return to base, where we will mark off the streets and see if we can find the trap.
  • Enjoy some refreshments, meet other participants and print out your pic to add to our Bleeding London wall.

Brilliant idea! At the moment, I'm having serious commute issues, which is partially why I haven't been as involved in this as I would like, but I'm registering my interest in attending and doing this. I'll have to confirm nearer the time.
