A Summer "Frontiers" walk along the Thames Path
By Hilary Barton
Posted: 2022-08-02T22:00:00Z

Thanks to Alan's great organisation, on an hot, sultry and windy evening, we had a wonderful walk along the Thames Path from the Anchor & Hope pub in Charlton to the O2 by North Greenwich Station, a distance of 2.2 miles.

The first part of the walk as far as Greenwich Yacht Club was semi-derelict wharves and the still-operating aggregates works at Angerstein Wharf. The second part of the walk was a mixture of developments in progress and completed, including the new "Design District", 16 buildings by 8 pioneering architects. As we passed under the Emirates air line we had a close view of Anthony Gormley's sculpture, Quantum Cloud. At the end of the peninsula we were treated to a lovely sunset behind Canary Wharf.

There was a wide range of subjects to photograph: the "edgelands" of Charlton Riverside; the "frontier" land along the Thames; architecture new and old; details; public art; views along and across the river; etc. etc.

Those of us who made it to the end quenched our thirsts in All Bar One in the O2.

At the next meeting, we will show and discuss our best images from the night, including members who couldn't make it to the Thames Path but went on their own walks. I will miss the next meeting as I will be on holiday so I have illustrated the blog with some of my own images. When Gerard sends me the "team photo" I will post it here as well.
