On Tuesday 8th December, 59 members joined Katie Wignall for our fourth online walk around London. Word has certainly got around, as to the excellent quality of these guided walks, and the numbers have been going up for every virtual walk.

This time, our digital route was around the districts of Smithfield and Clerkenwell. 

Everyone was enthralled and there was a screen full of visual appreciation from everyone. The event concluded with a special note of thanks from our Master, Mrs. Ann-Marie Jefferys.

Guild member Steven Morson has written a wonderful, highly detailed report which will be published in the Freeman 2021.
