Our finalized summer programme of splendid walks and visits is now available on our Programmes page.
We begin the new term with a walk led by Ian McBrayne, entitled “The Highway and its Byways”. During the walk we shall explore the history of the two small districts of Ratcliffe and Shadwell. The districts are based around two roads which run east-west, parallel and very close to each other, The Highway and Cable Street. We shall be looking at places of interest on or just off those two streets. Among other things, we shall be considering two great pieces of real-life 19th-century melodrama, the Ratcliffe Highway Murders and Jamrach and the Tiger.
If you would like to join us for our summer walks and visits, please get in touch with our secretary Frances Bulwer: firstname.lastname@example.org.
