A walk will start from Fulham Library on 23 September.
Monday 4 August 2014 marked the centenary of Britain’s entry into the First World War. The City of Westminster Archives have been working on WW1 education projects for a number of years and thanks to support from the Heritage Lottery Fund are marking the centenary year with the ‘Playing the Game’ project.
In the morning a registered City of Westminster Guide led a free walk through the heart of Westminster telling the story of WW1 using key locations such as Parliament Square, Wellington Barracks, Horse Guards Parade and the Cenotaph on Whitehall. 23 people enjoyed the walk in the bright sunshine and hearing the stories a year to the day was very poignant. Further free walks later in the year are being led from Charing Cross, Pimlico, Paddington, Fulham and Chelsea libraries.
