Coronavirus COVID19 walk week 2.
We will meet at Hayes train station at 11.15 to do a circular walk via Hayes Common, Kestin ponds to Leaves Green where we will eat our lunch before visiting the pub. There are buses from here to Bromley south train station. We will return to Hayes via Nash. The length of the walk is approximately 8 miles. We did this walk previously on 15/09/2019 . See https://redropelondon.wordpress.com/2019/10/01/15th-sept-2019-hayes-kent-circular/ There is one large field which is likely to be hard going.
Woodie will probably not be coming as he has some arthritis. The café that we stopped at before has now closed. Bring packed lunch as usual.
In view of the corona virus we need to practice social distancing on the walk and on the journey to and from the walk.
Coronavirus COVID19 walk week 1.
This walk is part 2 of the London Loop, a very pleasant green section that goes mostly through parkland and woods. It’s 7 miles from Bexley station to Petts Wood station. But if you don’t want to walk that far you can drop out at Sidcup which is about halfway. Not hilly, easy walking but parts likely to be muddy, as just about everywhere is presently.
A walk through Greenwich Park, with a stop off at the recently refurbished Queens
House (free entry) at the bottom of Greenwich Park which is showing
three Armada portraits of Elizabeth 1st allegedly for the first time in
four hunded years.
We will follow the Thames path in a westerly direction and see how far we get towards London Bridge.
Circular walk from Cockfosters underground station around Trent Park, where hopefully the daffodils will still be out – just 4 miles. There is a café at the beginning and end.
Following the aftermath of Storm Dennis, a London walk from North Dulwich station for a walk around Dulwich village and park and up Sydenham hill to the woods which is a nature reserve. Nice views if it’s not raining! There’s a cafe in the park and also the Dulwich Woodhouse
The post party walk was the day after the annual New Year
party and get together. It went along part of the New River path and and the Parkland Walk starting from Angel tube. The route included Queens Wood and Highgate Wood and finished at Alexandra Palace.
Walk from Colliers Wood tube station (Northern Line) to Carshalton – 5-6 miles.
