#BobCratchit2015 – A Wander From Cornhill to Camden Town Stave 1/5

Adam writes…

It's Christmas Eve and yesterday, in honour of Bob Cratchit, I traced his footsteps on his journey home from Scrooge's Cornhill office to his humble abode in Camden Town.

I started the day by making a sketch on the Northern Line for a cartoon of Bob…





No details of his journey are listed in A Christmas Carol, so here's the route I planned before setting off…



And here's the route I ended up following…






It's probably not as direct a route as that Bob himself would have chosen, but I tailored it to go through my beloved Clerkenwell – as you will see later today in Stave Four of this special Christmas Eve mini series.

On the way I snapped a few piccies of Bob Cratchit's London Christmas past, present and yet to come. I hope you enjoy them. Happy Christmas!


Next… Stave Two – Cornhill to Little Britain


A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at www.walks.com.
