Walk Report

Southfields to Barnes, Wednesday 6th May 2015
6 walkers, 6 miles - leader Andy Davies
6 of us enjoyed this stroll on an overcast and very blustery evening, but at least it did not rain.
We walked through Wimbledon Park, up to the village, passing the first building Richard Rogers ever designed, across Wimbledon Common and Putney Heath then down Putney Park Lane to the Marc Bolan memorial and on to Barnes Common. After seeing the others to Barnes Bridge station Andy retired to the Bulls Head for refreshment (well somebody has to keep the pubs going).
