Walk Report

Richmond Riverside and Park, Wednesday 8th June 2011
14 walkers, 7 miles - leader Douglas Robinson
Fourteen of us met at Richmond Station for the walk by the Thames and through Richmond Park. The weather was perfect with very clear views of Central London from the Park, including the protected view of St Paul's from King Henry's Mound. One little problem was being caught out by the early closure of the toilets at Pembroke Lodge - good job that the bracken was nice and high. We also thwarted by the oak procession moth - is this the first time that an LDWA walk has had to detour because of an insect? Because of the presence of its caterpillars, we could not walk through the Poets Corner and hence missed the Ian Dury bench. Ah well, you can't win them all and it was slightly earlier to the Roebuck than planned.
