Salads no. 59 Thamesmead with Owen Hatherley

This walk will go through the finished, unfinished and dismantled walkways, towers, lakes, canals and pathways of Thamesmead, the Greater London Council's hugely ambitious futuristic new town on the edges of south-east London. We will meet at Abbey Wood station, and will progress from there to the ruins of Lesnes Abbey, and will go from there along the walkway system to eventually end at Thamesmead Central, where there are cafes, a pub and a bus station. The area is undergoing redevelopment so there may be unplanned detours, and it is likely be a certain amount of climbing up non-accessible stairs.

Date: Saturday 30th March
Meeting place: Outside Abbey Wood Station
Time: 11.30am - 2.30 / 3pm
Cost: £5.50
Donation will be made to a charity of Owen's choice
