Order out of chaos? Thankfully not

The London Circle Walk

Repost from Michael Brunström’s unpronounceable blog and delightful idea:

A few years ago (quite a number of years ago, in fact), I was sitting in The Lock Tavern in Camden with Tim Wilson…We were several pints into the conversation and for reasons unknown we were discussing the work of the ‘land artist’ Richard Long

We argued pointlessly about how hard it would be to walk in big circles in different parts of the world, given geography and rights-of-way and that sort of thing. Much easier to walk nice geometrical shapes on the flats of Mongolia, of course. But what would happen, we asked ourselves, if we were to apply a pair of compasses to a map of London? How much zigzagging would you be forced to do in order to walk as closely as possible to an imaginary circle on the ground? What would we find along the way?

Thus, the London Circle Walk was born.

Find out more here, and sign on if you feel a need to complete the circle, explore more of London, or just find a new pub.
