Waltham Forest Tours presents The Ching with John Rogers, Psychogeographer-in-residence; a meander along the beautiful River Ching.
The River Ching flows through Waltham Forest from Epping Forest through Highams Park, and the streets of Chingford to its confluence with the River Lea near Banbury Reservoir.
John will be joined on this walk by violinist, and Epping Forest artist-in-residence Ellie Wilson. A map of the walk is being produced in by printer Russell Frost of Hooksmith Press, Leytonstone, and participants will be encouraged to make a record of their journey as part of the experience.
Meet: Queen Elizabeth's Hunting Lodge, 6 Rangers Road, Chingford, London, E4 7QH
This event is part of a series of walks led and instigated by writer, film-maker and Leytonstone resident John Rogers, author of This Other London – Adventures in the Overlooked City. The walks will explore various aspects of Waltham Forest from its topography, culture, overlooked heritage, and psychogeography. Local people of interest will join John on the walks to contribute to the pool of knowledge. The aim will be not simply to impart information but to share a way of looking at the landscape and the built environment.
The Ching is part of Waltham Forest Tours, a travel agency with a difference. Visit the Waltham Forest Tours section for more events.
