Walk Report

Peter Saw's Christmas Walk, Sunday 28th December 2008
9 walkers, 18 miles - leader Clare Kirkbride
The walk went very well in splendid weather, fresh but not windy. Dry overhead and underfoot, we were 9, fuelled by mince pies thoughtfully provided by Peter, and led along the Hogsmill Brook by Peter, then afterwards as a team effort by Joan, Andy, Helen and Clare. We took elevenses at the cafe in Morden Hall Park to plan the rest of the day, which turned out to be the Wandle Trail to Wimbledon Park for lunch, then circuitously to Richmond Park, and more directly to the viewpoint of St Paul's for a glorious sunset at 4pm with clear views over the Downs. Finally, to Norbiton station.
