Today I was walking with my friends along two sections of the Capital Ring Walk from Highgate to Hackney Wick. We stopped on the way for a picnic lunch in Abney Cemetery where William and Catherine Booth are buried. They were founders of the Salvation Army, a Christian Church that saw working among the poor and homeless part of their calling as a Christian. After seeing how the drinking of alcohol was the cause of much poverty they promoted abstinence.
