Walk Report

The Green Chain from Crystal Palace to Erith, Saturday 6th September 2008
6 walkers, 18 miles - leaders Malcolm & Marita Sanders
Despite recent torrential downpours and soggy forecasts, six trusting walkers met at the Crystal Palace end of the Green Chain on Saturday morning. Some, with eyes on the sky, shortened the walk at Oxleas Wood. The incurable optimists kept right on through the final, greenest sections of Woodlands Farm, East Wickham Open Space, Bostall Heath and Franks Park and made it to Erith Riverside.
