Walk Report

A Venison and Ham Wrap, Sunday 18th January 2009
25 walkers, 18 miles - leader Andy Shoesmith
25 walkers, including new and recent members, ignored forecasts of rain and gale force winds and enjoyed a mostly bright, sunny and clement walk. We headed up to Wimbledon Common, down to Robin Hood gate and entered Richmond Park. Going West, we passed a large herd of deer, on the way to Ham gate, then on to Ham and Teddington lock. We followed the Thames Path to Richmond, arriving at the Roebuck pub on Richmond Hill at midday, just in time for an excellent pub lunch. Others sat outside with a wonderful view over the river, and into the distance. For the afternoon, we re-entered Richmond Park at Richmond gate, meandering through varied scenery, with views to the City, passing Sheen and Roehampton gates, then following Beverley Brook back to Robin Hood gate. Back into Wimbledon Common, we headed North West to Putney Vale and then South to the Windmill, where we had a brief tea stop. The final stage took us back into the Common, across a few fairways of the golf course, then to Wimbledon village and down the hill to the station, arriving at 4 o'clock. All in all a great day; no rain, lots of sun and chat and no-one got lost!
