Walks from YMCA Wimbledon
These walks start promptly at 10am from YMCA Wimbledon, so walkers are advised to meet in the YMCA reception area 10 minutes earlier.
Historic Islington walk part 2, Tuesday 26 February
This walk follows on from an Islington walk of last November. From YMCA we walk to South Wimbledon tube station and take the Northern Line to Angel.

There will be a lunch stop at the Narrow Boat public house beside the towpath. Return is via the Northern Line from the Angel.
About 3 miles on pavements and paths.
