26 August 2012: Chingford to Debden via Buckhurst Hill

Sunday’s walk was a quiet five mile ramble in north east London, including saying goodbye to an old friend. Nine of us met at Walthamstow Central and took a bus to Chingford to join the London Loop, passing Queen Elizabeth’s Hunting Lodge.

Only the first part of the walk was in Epping Forest, but the rest was more rural and less suburban than we expected.

In Buckhurst Hill we met up with Jackie Manton, a long-standing former member who is about to move to Birmingham, and repaired to a tea shop near the station.

The last part of the walk was along the river Roding. Incidentally, most of this post was written and posted while we were actually doing the walk, or having tea, using my phone.
