►A Walthamstow walk

12 April 2018

On 12 April members of the Shorter Walks Group had a really enjoyable walk around Walthamstow Village, which was unknown to us in Crouch End and Muswell Hill. The photos show the range of buildings, from St Mary’s Churchyard to the old Walthamstow Town Hall. We had tea and a chance to look round the William Morris Gallery as well. For once, it did not rain!
