My name is Geoff Clements – I am a Londoner by birth, and have lived, worked and socialised in London throughout all my life, and I have a deep passion for London, its history, its customs and its people.
I retired from full-time employment in January 2017, following over 40 years’ service in the banking industry – and since then I have had time on my hands to be able to pursue my passion for ‘all things’ London, by undertaking weekly expeditions and adventures into the ‘Smoke’, exploring a specific topic or theme.
You can find out more about me along with the story behind how this website came about, and why it is called “London Shoes” – by simply opening the “About Me” tab at the top of this page, but basically this website is simply my sort of digital scrapbook for the purpose of publishing the output of my weekly expeditions and adventures whilst finding out more about London’s history and its many places of interest and its landmarks.
The ‘mechanics’ of this site are very simple, and you won’t find any difficulty navigating around it.
This is the Homepage, and then, from the menu above, you will see that there are the following tabs:- ‘Recent Blogs’ – ‘Categories’ – ‘Archives’ – ‘About Me’ – ‘Readers Feedback’ & ‘Contact Me’ sections of content.
My weekly ‘outings’ can also be viewed via the ‘Recent Blogs’ tab from the main menu – and you will find that all the blogs have been categorized within the ‘Categories’ tab.
Within the ‘Archives’ section you can find all of the ‘blogs’ that I have conducted so far by simply clicking/tapping on any of the ‘titles’ or the ‘months’ undertaken, and then a summary of each individual subject matter or theme will appear, for you to then click/tap on and read about.
Please feel free to utilise the ‘Contact Me’ tab, should you want to, as all feedback is very much welcomed.
I hope that you find the output of my ‘blogging’ days out both enjoyable and interesting.
