WALK on Saturday 20 March 2010

Our now bi-annual hike around the heart of Hackney Wick and the edge of the Olympic site continues for those of you who missed the last one. The walk will focus on the history of the area looking at the people and industries that shaped the Wick, or the Sink as it was known. Petroleum distillers, dry cleaners, plastic manufacturers, aniline dyers, confectioners and the sporting heritage will inform the walk. All topped off with a stop for lunch in the Hackney Pearl.
