Monday 2 August and Wednesday 11 August 2021
Epping Forest
Strawberry Hill Ponds, Mount Pleasant and Connaught Waters

A few places left for 2 August. Bookings made for 11 August will be placed on a waiting list

On this walk we cover approximately eight miles of the 6000 acres of Epping Forest. Starting at Chingford Station, a short road walk brings us to the dappled shade of the woodlands and then the glare of open grasslands. We pass several of the Forests 100 plus ponds and lakes and meet just three gentle inclines and one short, but steeper, hill before returning to Chingford.

    Wednesday 18 August and Monday 23 August 2021
    Leamouth
    8.5 miles / 13.5 km

    Book on 11 August, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

    Details
    Leamouth Walk

    Join us for a walk to track the River Lea (or Bow Creek as it also called for its last 2.5 miles or so) until it flows into the Thames at Leamouth. On this walk we will pass an Olympic stadium, a Victorian and post-modern pumping station, a tide mill, a cluster of Victorian gas holders, a memorial park, a private dock, a mountain of scrap metal, an ecology park, London’s only lighthouse, an eighteenth century street, a beach, and superb views of the Thames, and views of a world heritage site.
     
    Unfortunately it is not possible to walk alongside the Creek for its full length. As a result there is section which involves walking through an industrial estate and a few streets that must rank as some of the most unattractive in London!

      Monday 6 September and Wednesday 29 September 2021
      The Wandle Trail
      8 miles / 13 km

      Book on 25 August, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.


       
      Join us for a walk along part of the Wandle Trail starting from Earlsfield. From the station we quickly join this urban river path passing by a city farm. This area is steeped in history with much reference to William Morris and a former textile mill on Watermill Way. We stop for lunch at the lovely Morden Hall Park where we can see the Snuff Mill and Rose Garden. We then pass parks and playing fields, Wilderness Island nature reserve, Grove Park and Carlshalton Ponds until we find our way back to Hackbridge Station. All within zone 6, we walk through the London Boroughs of Wandsworth, Merton and Croydon, a nature filled urban walk!
