Socials

On the fourth Wednesday of the month we host a slideshow at The Old Kings Head, London Bridge, in the upstairs room (ask the bar staff for directions if you can’t find it). Our slideshows are usually by members, although occasionally we have speakers from outside the club. These cover a wide range of climbing and walking topics, from trips our members have been on to lectures by notable climbers and mountaineers. The show starts at 7:30pm and will generally finish about 9:30pm.

We sometimes organize other ad hoc socials, which will be added here once details are known; email notifications will also be sent.

Corner to Corner: A journey from the Isles of Scilly to Shetland
Wed 28 Feb 2018

Last year I resigned from my job, moved out of my flat, put all my possessions in my parents’ garage and took the leap. From taking the first step away from Land’s End to walking into John O’Groats was 1,231 miles taking 131 days. I didn’t set out to achieve a new LEJOG speed record nor did I have a set end date, instead this journey was about exploration and learning - not just about myself but about the history, culture and heritage of the places I walked through. By passing through the landscapes at a slower pace - and you can’t get much slower than my walking pace! - I learnt so much about this country.

I also included the islands as a way to bookend my walk. From Cornwall I travelled to Long Point, St Agnes (the most south westerly point of the Isles of Scilly) and from John O'Groats I sailed and drove to Skaw, Unst (the most north easterly point of the Shetland Islands).

Come along if you want to hear more and see some photos of my trip!

From 7pm, presentation around 7.30pm.
