Kensington Walk 2005

The Kensington Walk 2005, part of the Kings Alumni weekend, was a great success with 31 KCHSS/QEC people turning up. Below are the arrangements for the day including the itinerary for the walk, followed by some photos hot off the press and a  list of attendees.

Following on from the success of the 2004 Alumni weekend a similar event will take place in 2005, over the weekend of 10 - 12th June 2005.

The Windsor Castle in Campden Hill RoadThe special Reunion event for QEC staff and students at the forthcoming KCLA Reunion weekend (June 10-12th 2005) will be a walking tour of Kensington in the area around the old QEC site on Sunday June 12th.  We will meet at the Windsor Castle pub on Campden Hill Road and aim to set off at 1.30pm (ish!).  Do come along early if you wish to have lunch or a drink and a chat before we set off. The tour will end in Holland Park so we can take tea in the cafe or retire to another hostelry, depending how people feel at the time. If you wish to take part please contact Wendy James at the KCL Alumni Office on 020 7848 3053 or email (or just turn up on the day; the Alumni office can also give you details of other events taking place over the weekend).

QEC?And, in case you thought you knew the area, where can you find this plaque that clearly has the initials ‘QEC’ on it?


I look forward to seeing many 'old' and new friends there and revisiting old haunts together

And the QEC Gates are not missing after all...

At the AGM in 2004 it was commented that the builders had lost the gates to QEC. Well on the above walk the gates were there for all to see. However to several of us the look and feel of the material seemed to indicate that the gates were new ones and not the original, so perhaps the original gates were lost but replaced with very good copies.
