Walk Report

South London Mega Tour, Sunday 31st March 2019
3 walkers, 19 miles – leader Jerome Ripp
Transport difficulties caused the start at Clapham Junction to be delayed by 30 minutes. The route was a repeat of 2 summer evening walks; the morning section was Wandsworth common to join the Capital Ring to Tooting common, Streatham vale and a coffee stop in Mitcham. The vast pleasant green expanse of Mitcham common was followed by some urban footpaths which seemed to resemble walking inside a litter bin. The Wandle Trail was the next green corridor with lunch stop at Morden hall cafe. A series of parks; Morden which was a real green park, Motspur which had some footpaths and Worcester which was just a vast housing estate and finally following the Hogsmill river on the Thames Down Link which is now a very pleasant nature reserve with the sun coming out to add some spring joy and finishing at Berrylands station
