Walk Report

Barnes to Richmond, Wednesday 30th May 2018
10 walkers (and a dog), 6 miles - leader Douglas Robinson
Ten walkers and one dog enjoyed the walk across Barnes Common to the Thames and then the walk on the towpath to Richmond. Among the ten walkers were three new members who were especially welcome. During the evening, the walkers managed to cross from the Eastern Hemisphere to the Western Hemisphere and back again or, at least, they would have had the walk been 200 years ago when the meridian line ran through the Old Deer Park in Richmond, before it moved to Greenwich. To end the evening, a few drinks were had in a pub on Richmond Green.
