Walk Report

Round About Richmond, Sunday 16th February 2020
9 walkers, 17.5 miles - leader Lonica Vanclay
9 of us intrepid walkers ignored the dire weather forecast and shrugged off the train and tube delays and cancellations in order to walk 17.5miles. The wind was very light but the rain seemed to get steadier and colder through the day - until it stopped and the sun even shone more or less when we finished at the station. Nowhere near as bad as predicted though. In the morning we followed the Thames from Kew to Kingston where the Waitrose cafe served most of us very well indeed. The afternoon was through Richmond Park. We did see deer and experienced lots of wet soggy ground but minimal mud.
