I was thinking about the timing of the Walk:
“Is a 11:00am start really convenient for those wishing to participate from further away without having to come the day before and stay the night in London?”
So, I looked at the train timetables for various areas and found that even the earliest train service to London will be too late if travelling from:
Leeds (arrives at 11:28)
York (arrives at 11:28)
Birmingham (arrives at 11:00)
Doncaster (arrives at 10:47)
Sheffield (arrives at 10:47)
Hull (arrives at 12:19)
Liverpool (arrives at 12:55)
Newcastle (arrives at 13:15)
Durham (arrives at 13:15)
Glasgow (arrives at 15:40)
There are no problems with catching a train in time from:
It may not be possible to have a time that is suitable for all but it might just make it easier for more to attend if the start time was moved to later. So the start time has been moved to 13:00.
This makes it more convenient for those from Leeds/Wakefield
, York, Birmingham, Doncaster and Hull. Now, only those from further North (Liverpool, Newcastle, Durham and Glasgow) wil be unable to make it a day trip. The Walk should finish by 15:30hrs. --------------------
PARTICIPANTS ARRIVAL TIME: 12.00

All other information remains the same.
I hope as many of you will take the opportunity to meet up.
