After Work Walks return for September
Following the success of the Wednesday After Work Walks in July, Rethinking Cities will be bringing 6 intriguing walks for Londoners to get their teeth into - if you are curious about London's many neighbourhoods and like to share a story or two, or get into a full blown discussion, or just wind down after work, then there will be a walk or two for you.
Author Tom Bolton whose "Walkers' Guide to London's Lost Rivers" publishes this September (Strange Attractor Press), will lead a walk to "Release the Walbrook" - where the Walbrook flows into the Thames was where the Romans first settled, and its course marks the eastern boundary of Londonium. This walk starts at Shoreditch High Street Overground station at 6.15pm on Weds 31 August - register here.

The walk starts at Southwark tube station at 6.15pm on Weds 14 September - register here.
"Look Up and Smile" on this intriguing invesitgation into London's skylines and the curiosities on the tops of buildings.

Through financial help of the Geologists' Association's Curry Fund and the support of the London Geodiversity Partnership, English Heritage and the Public Realm Information Advice Network, Martin Fidler, creator of the Ruskin Walk will lead two Ruskin Geology Walks: "Camberwell Stones" and "Clerkenwell Rocks".
