On the eighth of February 2014, walks started from St James Park station, Wood Green and Kensal Green and converged on Camden for the Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Inner London Area of the Ramblers at the Pirate Castle.  The weather was kinder than last year, although it was 'good weather for ducks' and several dozen people came on each walk.

Following a break for some lunch, we held the AGM at the Pirate Castle, next to the Regent's Canal, west of Camden Lock.  Our first guest speaker, Bruce McVean, founder of the Movement for Liveable London (http://movementforliveablelondon.com/) spoke about the importance of walking in achieving a more liveable London.  That was followed by the formal business of the meeting and then the second guest speaker, staff member Nicky Philpott, Director of Advocacy and Engagement at Ramblers Central Office.
