Walk Report

Rivers & Parks, Saturday 13th May 2017
15 walkers, 21 miles - leader Alan Laycock
Start Time 09:15, Finish Time 16:15
In overcast conditions 15 walkers assembled at Weybridge Station. From the station we joined the River Wey Towpath for about a mile and then the Thames Path, and continually dodging cyclists, headed towards Hampton Court stopping at Elmbridge Leisure Centre 'en route' for a quick drinks break.
We navigated the golf course in Home Park without incident and arrived in Canbury Gardens for lunch in cold and windy conditions.
After lunch, and in improving weather conditions, we continued on the Thames Path to Ham and then into Richmond Park where our route took us through the spectacular Isobella Plantation and followed the Beverley Brook until we joined the Tamsin Trail between Roehampton and Sheen Gates.
Leaving the Park at Richmond Gate, we continued along the Thames Path to Richmond Green and the Station.
