Walk Report

South of Trafalgar Square, Sunday 22nd January 2012
22 walkers, 19 miles - leader Susanne Waldschmidt
Start Trafalgar Square 8.45. Finish East Croydon 16.30. 20 completed. Lunch Morden Hall Park. Excellent National Trust cafe.
We started with a brisk walk through the Royal Parks and the back alleys of Belgravia. This was followed by a whistle-stop tourof the National Army Museum with its excellent loos (the other exhibits looked pretty good as well). We continued along the Thames Path to Wandsworth and then followed the Wandle Trail. The unseasonably warm and pleasant weather had its downside when we had to battle through thick swarms of midges. A highpoint of the walk, apart from the riverside scenery, was the flock of goats being herded along the suburban street.
