From Canal to Lake – Abbey Point Cafe

10 July @ 11:00 am1:00 pm BST

An OPDC sponsored free walk from the canal around the site of the old Guinness Brewery, uncovering the past and seeing what is here now.

Meet at the Abbey Point Cafe, then walk along the canal a short way to find its oldest building and see where the Radio Times used to be printed. Attendees will then take the long route round the former Guinness site calling in on the way at an impressive prop shop and old friends at Archies on a new site, talking all the time about what used to be there. Enter what is now Lakeside and see the new developments, lake and the greenery within.

Of course, they have another cafe in mind for the end of the walk where, if you wish, you can linger with everyone, chill and chat. Usually on these walks there are a mix of people, some of whom might know the area well, others who may be new to it and you are encouraged to share any observations and ask questions. It’s not your normal guided walk as those who have been on our walks will tell you.

Attending this event means you can keep in touch with other attendees on this Facebook group page where you can share pictures, memories and stories from and related to the walks.
