The Patterson Challenge Is On: Sunday 1st February

Start breaking in your best walking shoes, grab yourself a pac a mac and polish your camera lens - The Walk takes place next weekend.

Gathering at Camden Tube station on Sunday 1st February at 9am we'll be treading in Patterson's footsteps and ticking off sights and streets as we go, emulating his no nonsense approach to seeing as much of the capital in one day as possible. Involving around 15 miles of footwork and two river boat trips, this is not for the fainthearted nor the strollers. We'll be setting a pace, capturing the route on camera and keeping you updated via Twitter as we go, working out how much of the city from 150 years ago is still around today.

If you'd like to sign up and join us, email us now. Even if you'd just like to join as at certain points along the route, to cheer us on or bring us coffee, cake and a hipflask - do. Victoriana optional.

The route is mapped here and you can read Patterson's diary extract here.
