Herne Hill Hunters

This weekend saw Herne Hill over-run by people squinting at maps, counting logs, guessing the ages of buildings and spotting the height of bridges as hundreds of locals (and a few out-of-towners) took part in The Hunt. We designed the maps so that they'd take people on a tour of Herne Hill's hidden joys according to us, so it was brilliant to see the hunters coming back full of excitement about having discovered the Velodrome or visited the Lido or noticed the painted menagerie for the first time. Loads stayed on to see if they'd won and the party in the tunnel afterwards, by all accounts, went down a storm. Though, actually, we'd gone home knackered by the then. Very un-rock'nroll altogether.
