Walk Report

Richmond Park, Wednesday 11th April 2018
6 walkers, 7 miles - leader Colin Saunders
We were 6 yesterday: Gordon P, Dave W, Hilary S, Casilda (Spanish lady), another Dave whose surname I can't remember, and me. The walk went according to plan though the distance was actually just under 7 miles, and conditions underfoot were very wet: Richmond Station, East Sheen Common, Bog Gate into Richmond Park, Roehampton Gate (toilets), White Lodge, Pen Ponds, Isabella Plantation (toilets), Thatched House Lodge, Kingston Gate to Kingston station and the Kings Tun 'Spoons. At Thatched House Lodge we were buzzed by the parks police and a security officer as it was getting dark and it's the home of Princess Alexandra, but I had taken the precaution of agreeing the route and time in advance with the park superintendent so they were sent on their way, as were we.
