Walking together in the name of social justice

An alternative #walkthetalk2015 route!

Wed, 08/12/2015 - 05:13 -- Rob Parker
Two enterprising supporters have decided to do #walkthetalk2015 from Norfolk to London, taking advantage of the Ickneild Way and other long distance paths. Their route will take them via Thetford, Newmarket, Saffron Walden, Bishops Stortford, and Ware / Hertford.
 
Their plan is to start in parallel with walkers in Leicester on the morning of Monday 17th and to arrive at the end of day 4 (Thursday 20th) at the main walk's end point near South Mimms. The duo will then walk the final day into London with us so that we all end the 5 days and 100 miles together.
 
We're delighted that others are finding ways to replicate the spirit and intent of the walk and broaden the exposure of the issues we are highlighting. If you're planning on taking part in a different way, please do get in touch and let us know what you're up to.

Thanks for letting everyone know. We will keep you posted as we go along, highs and lows.
We'd love to hear from anyone else in East Anglia and will be walking through Norfolk, Suffolk Cambridgshire and Hertfordshire before we hit London. And that is terrifying.

Hard to believe that in 12 hours we will be on our way walking from Norfolk to London. I'm not even sure I can do it but it's got to be worth a try. If there is 3G en route we will be keeping you posted on our progress - might actually edit out the most painful bits though - or not!
