How did London deal with death? Find our tomorrow on our architecture ride

Join us tomorrow (Saturday 29 November 2014) for our next ride around the London landscape when we will be looking at how the city has dealt with death over the years.

Come on this easy-going all day ride for a tour of some quiet green places that hardly anyone notices, forgotten and overlooked in the bustle of London life, some of which were once scenes of unimaginable filth and squalor that eventually gave rise to public outrage.

Often street names and plaques are the only clues in this treasure hunt of social history which will take us to public gardens, lonely burial grounds and lumpy churchyards.

This leisurely, largely level ride with frequent stops will cover sites in the East End and possibly Hackney and Camden if time permits.

This will be an all-day ride with a lunch stop. We will aim be back in central London by around 4.30 so you will need lights.

Meet: Saturday 29 November 2014 10:00am for 10:15 start at Drury Lane Gardens, Covent Garden. near junction Russell St and Drury Lane, WC2B 5SN. Latecomers can catch us up at St Bride’s, Fleet St, our first stop.

Ride led by Marion Houghton. For further information on the ride contact Mark Knox – 07765 945530/
