Walk Report

Discover two of London's Forgotten Rivers and Cigarette Island, Wednesday 28th June 2017
8 walkers, 8 miles - leaders Gail & John Elrick
Eight walkers covered the eight-mile walk which entailed following the Rivers Mole and Ember through East Molesey and a stretch through Home Park to finish at Kingston. At the halfway point, Cigarette Island, we stopped to partake of party cake with green icing donated by John and Gail's neighbour, a professional cake maker!
