Back in London again for work today, and time for a few caches afterwards. Lambeth and Vauxhall here I come.

After a nice walk along the River Thames, I headed to an urban farm and found a plastic cow! It was looking at me when I found the cache.

The last one was close to some lovely old Georgian architecture. Now time to head back to the train for home.

Day #199 – Lunchtime Loop

Trad: 7 Event: 1
Walked: 6.7 miles

I was working in Millbank today and had a nice little walk at lunchtime from Lambeth Bridge to Vauxhall Bridge along both sides of the Thames.

I’m not normally very good at urban caching, often being muggled or things not being there. But I had a very successful outing! The first was Abbott John Islip:

Next up was the recently-replaced Tate Britain #2:

Then a quick find, Carry On Spying, in Bessborough Gardens:

Finally, a return to White Hart Dock, which I had DNF’d a few weeks back:

After a lovely lunchtime walk, I also had a walk to Covent Garden this evening for London Event – Summer Is Here @ Covent Garden event. I had some food and chatted with a couple of friendly cachers before my voice finally gave out and I called it a night.

Day #171 – Doing The Lambeth Walk

Multi: 1 Event: 1
Walked: 7.2 miles

For the next couple of months, I’m working one day a week in Millbank, close to the Houses of Parliament. I’ve found quite a few caches around there, but I took the opportunity for a walk on the opposite bank near Lambeth Palace at lunchtime today.

The Palace (where the Archibish lives) has its own Church Micro which I found with little trouble. Another DNF nearby was a bit frustrating, but perhaps I will find it another day.

This evening saw the 37th Essex Meet at our original pub, The Woolpack in Chelmsford. But I was so busy chatting with lots of friends that I completely forgot to take any photos!
