Walk Report

Peter Saw's Christmas Walk, Saturday 22nd December 2012
11 walkers, 18 miles - leader David Rossington
In spite of the rain and unpromising forecast, 11 of us met for a walk from Norbiton Station to Richmond on 22 December. The walk was conceived by Peter Saw, who sadly passed away this year, and Hilary Saw was present at the start to offer us hot mince pies which we greatly appreciated. The rain wasn't too bad at all and lifted for the afternoon, and we had an excellent walk through South-West London, including parks, two river systems, a cemetery, and a New England style housing estate. The colours in Richmond Park towards the end of the walk were magnificent: dark orange bracken, beige grass and well camouflaged brown for a herd of stag deer that we passed along our route.
