David Bellis will take us on a walk around Mount Davis. We'll walk out from the city and enjoy the greenery and views out over the South China Sea. This is a variation on a much-appreciated walk we did back in February 2017, with the write-up on Page 22-23 of our March 2017 Newsletter which you can find .
Up through a little-known part of Kennedy Town to Pok Fu Lam Road, around Mount Davis Road, up to Mt. Davis Fresh Water Service Reservoir, then down along Victoria Road. The surface is paved throughout. Finish: We'll end up back at the Kennedy Town MTR Station.
The walk is illustrated with historic maps and photographs of the area. David runs the popular local-history website, Gwulo.com. It hosts over 20,000 pages about old Hong Kong, including over 10,000 photos. In 2014 he received the SCMP Spirit of Hong Kong Award for Heritage Preservation. David has lived in and around Kennedy Town for over twenty years and enjoys discovering and sharing its hidden history.
