Walk Report

Twickenham to Trafalgar Square, Saturday 2nd June 2018
14 walkers, 20.6 miles - leader Alan Laycock
Fourteen walkers arrived at Twickenham Station on trains crowded with Rugby supporters, many in fancy dress, on their way to the Sevens tournament at HQ. We headed in the opposite direction for the River, to Eel Pie Island, and then in to York House Gardens and "The Naked Ladies" after a group photo we headed for Marble Hill Park and along the Thames Path to Richmond Bridge and back along the Thames Path on the opposite side before turning off by Ham House. We entered Richmond Park at Ham Gate and followed the Tamsin Trail to Robin Hood Gate where we joined the Beverley Brook Trail through Palewell Common, Barnes Common and Lower Putney Common to the River in Putney and to our lunch break.
After lunch we continued along the River to a sunny and very busy Battersea Park. We crossed Chelsea Bridge and then walked through Pimlico to Horse Guards Parade and finished the walk 4:15pm at the Lord Moon of The Mall where one of the Guest Ales was coincidently Twickenham Breweries Naked Ladies Golden Ale.
