Lisa Pontecorvo was a well loved local activist tragically killed earlier this year when a lorry ran into her on a dangerous crossing. The Tolpuddle 1834 demonstration mural on Copenhagen Street has Lisa pictured holding the banner on the right hand side. Her image was very recently added following requests from local people. Lisa would have been the leading light in making TolpuddleKX a community led success and would have worked hard to involve local young people and school children. We miss her terribly.
The walk starts at the P & O site in King’s Cross at 4.30 p.m. The starting point will be where Bravington Walk meets Pentonville Road and we will leave the site at about 5 o’clock, pausing at the entrance to King’s Cross station opposite Wharfdale Road. We will then proceed along Wharfdale Road to admire the shop fronts in Caledonian Road, making our way slowly up Caledonian Road as far as Richmond Avenue and thence into Matilda Street to the Mews and the chimney at 6.15. Finally we will return south to Edward Square arriving at 7 o’clock. This will give time to reach “Comrades” at Islington Green.
