Summerstown182 history walks now ready to download for your daily exercise allowance!
“I hope everyone is doing OK. We are currently permitted to leave our homes for a daily exercise and to make things a little more interesting, I’ve reworked some of the most popular Summerstown182 local history walks which you might like to take in as your daily allowance. Just go on the website below, scroll down to see the selection of ‘Great Escapes’ and take your pick. Click on the title to download a guide which you can print out or just keep handy on your phone when you’re out and about! There are six walks to choose from so far but more in the pipeline.
This is great if you live in Tooting, Earlsfield or Wandsworth but those living further afield can join in the fun too by downloading the guide, getting onto a Google street map and doing a virtual tour.
Many of you kindly donated towards historic plaques on my walks and if you enjoy your ‘Great Escape’ and feel like you want to show your appreciation, I suggest supporting CriticalNHS, currently doing great work in this area feeding frontline staff at St George’s Hospital and sustaining local businesses.”
Stay safe everybody and keep your distance.
