Monday 1 November and Wednesday 10 November
Grand Union Canal Walk #1
8 miles/12.8 km

Waiting list only for 10 November, places still available for 1 November

The walk starts at Bromley-by-Bow underground station, first following the towpath of the Limehouse Cut which links the River Lea to the Limehouse Basin on the Thames, which is where the Regent’s Canal actually begins. Continuing on canalside towpaths we feel the atmosphere of our route, passing the university buildings of Queen Mary’s, Mile End Park and stopping for lunch in Victoria Park. Then a peep at one of the trendy streets of Haggerston and carrying on through Islington (avoiding the canal’s tunnel there) to end up at Kings Cross/ St Pancras underground station.

    Wednesday 17 November / Monday 29 November
    Watton-at-Stone circular

    Book on 10 November between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

    We will be walking from Watton-at-Stone through fields and woods following the Chain Walk now and then. Our paths vary along this pleasant circular walk, but much of it is on fairly broad paths so mud won’t be as much of an issue in many sections. We do have some field walking, of course, but what would a country walk be without some mud and slush! We’ll skirt around and through various woods, walk through a farm’s right of way and return back to Watton-at Stone station. Lunch will be in the lovely village green of Bramfield where, if we are very, very lucky, we may spot a Red Kite hovering and hunting just close over ahead. Very exciting!

      Monday 13 December
      Thames Festive Walk and Dinner

      Waiting list only

      We invite you to join Gill and Jane for a pleasant walk along the Thames Path to enjoy the lights and ambience of a late afternoon December day along the Thames. We’ll start at Sloane Square and will soon cross the beautifully lit Albert Bridge to walk along the South Bank to enjoy Battersea Park. While we will need to divert from the Thames occasionally around the ever developing Battersea Power Station, the new developments are well worth a look. We cross Vauxhall Bridge and Lambeth Bridge and have a wonderful view of Lambeth Palace to our right. After passing Westminster Bridge we’ll be in the heart of South Bank and all its offerings for people watching and lovely tourist spots. We continue to enjoy the river, the sites, the dazzling lights and lit up bridges until we reach Tower Bridge. We then cross Tower Bridge, arrive at St Katherine Docks and enjoy a well, earned dinner with all our walking friends.
