Parks, Spoons and and the delights of the Surrey Hills - a new week's walking with London LDWA!

Well, the weather's turned out nice again so what better on Wednesday than Pete's South London odyssey from one hill (Forest) to another (Denmark) as the sun goes down? Then on Saturday there are all the delights of the Surrey Hills area to look forward to, featuring the River Wey navigation and the North Downs way, on Ian's circuit of Guildford. Meanwhile, here are a couple of photos to inspire you.
