Dear local walker

This Sunday, 2.30 pm (British Summer Time because the clocks will have changed), is the repeat of the walk from the churchyard of St Mary’s Church, Church Road, Leyton E10 5JP.  This will pass the homes of a few people commemorated in the churchyard, most of them casualties of the First World War, and return to the churchyard about 2 hours later.  We will look at the churchyard and then start along Rosedene Terrace.  Firm surfaces with plenty of streets to cross.  Bus routes 58 and 158 pass the church, and Leyton High Road with routes 69 and 97 is only a few minutes walk away.  There are convenience shops on the High Road.
