Event Details Updated
If you're coming on this walk, please note four things! 1) Allow about 1 hour to get to Ruislip Manor from central London on the Piccadilly line (maybe a bit less from Baker St on Met line) 2) The path is very easy but a bit slippy / muddy in parts. You might want to walk in walking shoes or lightweight boots that you don't mind getting a bit dirty 3) The last half of the walk will be in darkness. A torch would be helpful. 4) We should be finished about 20:30 if we walk briskly and start promptly. There is a Wetherspoons (JJ Moon) directly opposite Ruislip Manor station at the end. Does decent food quickly and cheaply, but can be a bit noisy and busy

Walk Report

To the Manor Born, Thursday 1st October 2015
10 walkers, 6 miles - leader Adam Dawson
An enjoyable autumnal walk in the woods, taking in the Ruislip lido and the depths of Ruislip woods. A walk of contrasts, and sometimes had to believe we were in deepest suburbia all evening. Finished just after 8pm, in the dark so head torches were required. Just time for a quick pint in Wetherspoons before heading back to London on the Met or Piccadilly lines.
