Walk Report

Osterley Stroll, Saturday 14th March 2020
13 walkers, 17 miles - leader Dave Williams.
12 of us set off from Osterley on an almost balmy Spring day & were joined en-route by a latecomer.
Unfortunately the leader was suffering from a long-standing injury which slowed his pace but in the true spirit of the LDWA soldiered on regardless.
To add to our misfortune our planned coffee stop at the Syon Park Garden Centre didn't happen as it had gone out of business!
However in spite of this adversity we carried onto our lunch stop at Richmond & suitably fortified we resumed our odyssey through Richmond Park, across Ham Common & along the river path to Kingston where a number of slopers abandoned the walk.
After a tea stop in Bushy Park the rest of us carried onto to Hampton Court without any further misfortune.
