Walk Report

River Wandle Trail, Wednesday 15th June 2011
8 walkers, 9 miles - leader Andy Davies
Eight of us met at Carshalton station and after relaxing for a few minutes on the comfortable sofas set off along the Wandle on a cloudy and initially slightly damp evening. Steve and I had already walked from Waddon Pond the other source of the river two and a half miles away. I blame the relatively low turnout on the fact that the walk did not get listed in Strider, for reasons unknown. One extra walker arrived on a later train and caught us up. We all enjoyed the walk which follows the river closely for most of its length running through lots of pleasant parkland. When we reached the Thames at about 9.30 we looked out for the lunar eclipse but there was too much cloud. We ended with beers at The Ship by Wandsworth Bridge.
