Walk Report

London Parks Way Part 1 - Kingston to Hammersmith, Saturday 10th October 2015
22 walkers, 22 miles - leader Rob Myers
The final part of Rob's London Parks Way walk was between Kingston and Hammersmith. This attracted 22 people on a pleasant Autumn day. It was good to see a lot a lot of people who had done other parts of the walk. The walk began in Hampton Court Park and then proceeded to Hampton Court Palace where we visited the formal gardens (free of charge after Sept 30th). We then did a tour of Bushy Park and we all enjoyed watching the red deer antics during rutting season.
After a lunch break along Kingston riverfront we spent most of the afternoon exploring Richmond Park. Again the red deer were the main attraction. Early October is a really magical time to visit the park! We had a close encounter with 2 young male stags who had their horns interlocked and were practicing the rut. After Richmond Park we crossed Barnes Bridge and finished with a pleasant walk along the Thames back to Hammersmith. Congratulations to Dave, Neil and Joelle who completed all 3 parts of the 67-mile route.
