    Extended, non-abridged versions.

    Thank you.

    Sounds a good way of guiding yourself around the JTR locations. Like the idea of the additional video guides.

    Personally, I'm looking forward to constructing our own walk based on the Edgar's Guide.

    That way, we don't have to stick to any prescribed schedule and can follow our noses wherever they lead us.

    They usually lead us imainly nto interesting looking pubs, but don't worry, I'll ensure that we are still coherent and perfectly well behaved by the time we arrive for the WS meeting, I promise!
    Well, you will be the only ones!

    Regarding pubs - I used to live in the area in the 1980s and the Jack the Ripper as it was then was pretty decent. It was renamed back to the Ten Bells just before I left London. Even back then there would always be a group of people on a Jack the Ripper tour stop by whatever evening you were there. It was strange the looks you'd get, as if they were wondering which of you was Jack the Ripper, or possibly his great grandson.

    I haven’t been on a Richard Jones tour but it’s bound to be a good one. Ditto Phillip Hutchinson.

    Oh. Sorry to hear that Ero.

    That's a shame.

    I hope it works out next time.

    I'll be trying the guide out in November, so I'll post a little review of how it goes.
    Please do!

    Hi Ero!

    I was just wondering whether you have had the opportunity to try out the Edgar's Guide walk?

    I've booked my trip to London and am planning to give it a go, so I'd be interested to know how you got on.

    Hope you had a lovely time!
