Yet Another Way to Get to the Kingston Wetherspoons, Wednesday 30th August 2017
10 walkers, 8 miles - leader Keith Lane
9 hardy walkers joined me at Feltham station which considering the all-day rain we had was quite impressive.
In the event hardiness was not needed because not only did the rain stop before we set off but it got warmer and the sun even broke through the clouds before it set.
The walk proceeded through Feltham Park and a small amount of pavement bashing before we got to the banks of the River Crane which we followed through the Calvary Tunnel and on past the Shot Tower to the outer reaches of Twickenham and on to Bushey Park via Fulwell Golf Club and Hampton Hill.
We reached Heron Pond (which appropriately did have a heron on it - see photo). There we embraced the dying of the light, stillness and mist rolling across the park before proceeding in near darkness to the Kingston Gate, the Kingston Wetherspoons and fish & chips.
