Walk Report

Mortlake to Richmond, Wednesday 11th March 2015
4 walkers, 6 miles - leader Douglas Robinson
Four people and a dog enjoyed the gentle stroll by the river to Richmond. It was a calm and peaceful evening with few other people out and about apart from the rowers and canoers on the river. As a result of the large bends on the river, the walk was notable for crossing the meridian line twice (not the current meridian in Greenwich but the one that preceded it in Richmond.)
Finally, the Princes Head on Richmond Green provided a good end to the walk as it ticked all the boxes - good beer, good food, football on the TV and happy to have the dog.
