Saturday August 27th

Cheshunt Loop

Please note: The planned walks for the next few months have been swapped as Engineering work means the line to Epping Forest is closed this weekend.

 
This time we are back to walking around lakes and rivers, so no hills. It's 6 miles on good surface so there won't be any mud. We meet at Euston in the Tube Ticket Hall at 10:30am to travel together to Cheshunt Overground station (NB my train arrives at Euston Mainline at 10:29 so I will be a minute or two late).
Our route will be Victoria Line to Seven Sisters then Overground to Cheshunt. If coming from elsewhere you can catch a Cheshunt train from Liverpool Street. [there are two rail routes to Cheshunt, Oyster/Contactless are valid on both but the free versions (eg 60+) are ONLY valid on the slower London Overground route which we will take].
Please note there is a cafe on the route and The Red Cow pub at the end of the walk (http://www.theredcowcheshunt.com/)
This is a different walk than the one advertised (although the meeting place is the same) because of Rail Engineering Work. Please check back here in case of issues caused by potential strikes (though none are planned at time of posting this)

 

Saturday October 1st

Chesham Loop

We head out in to the Chiltern Hills, but it's a gentle walk with only one real hill. Our 6 miles begin at Chesham Metropolitan line station at 11:30am (2 trains per hour from Wembley Park) and we walk through the old town before crossing a hill to a wonderful Chiltern valley which returns us to the country town that is Chesham.

Saturday October 29th

Epping Forest

We last walked in the Forest just before Lockdown in 2020, this time we walk south to north from Chingford station to Epping station. It's 8 and a half miles of walking and there are hills and valleys but the good news is it's a gravel path so we will avoid mud. Meet at Euston station at 10:45am to travel together to Chingford Overground station.

This is the longest walk we have scheduled for this year, and the route is undulating although it is mostly on good paths and we will avoid mud.

Saturday November 26th

Wimbledon Common and Richmond Park

7 and a half miles through parks, commons and riverside for a perfect autumn walk. We meet at Wimbledon Park District Line station at 11:30am for this month's walk.

Saturday December 31st

The London & Greenwich Railway

London's oldest railway and Britain's longest viaduct. This is a town walk along an old route full of historic places as well as recently refurbished areas. It's an area of London you probably do not know at all! We meet at London Bridge station at 11:15am.
