Dear all

We've got a couple of lovely walks to get us out and about this week.   Details follow later in the email.

So, what's on this week?

First of all, on Tuesday, Peter going to be heading out to Beverley Brook.   No, not a B-list Hollywood film star, as it happens, but yet another of those little-known tributaries of the Thames which we seem to be getting into the habit of exploring lately.   To join this walk, make your way along to New Malden station for 18.00 on Tuesday.

Then on Saturday, Ron will be heading slightly further afield exploring the Chelmer valley in Essex.   This linear walk goes north east from Hatfield Peverel to Witham with a big detour to the ancient port of Maldon, for lunch.   If you'd like to go, take the train to Hatfield Peverel station for 09.40, but don't forget to buy a return to Witham (the station you'll be returning from, which is one stop further down the line).

 

Well that's all for now.

Take care

Adam
