Helen lead a lovely springtime (& slightly muddy) walk on Thursday 3rd March.

Just an hour northeast of London on the Essex/Cambridgeshire border we walked from Newport to Diddington, then Debden, & back to Newport. With stops to look at treasures in the local churches, peek into a vast mediaeval tithe barn, and have a really good pub lunch, it made for a great day out.

Sat. 11th July - Runnymede to Windsor Walk

 

A walk which connected two of the most historically significant locations in English history.

Three of us (plus dog) had a glorious sunny day in Windsor Great Park which even included ice creams & a polo match……

Previous walks:

Sun. 29th March - River Chess Walk

 

Country walk along the River Chess from Chalfont Latimer to Rickmansworth. 

We had a wet, wild & windy day and got soaked in all sorts of ways but we had a good walk & lots of laughs. We were joined by 3 ladies from N1WI which was especially enjoyable.

Sun. 18th January – Turville Walk in the Chilterns

Country walk in the neighbourhood of Turville – known to some as the location for “The Vicar of Dibley” We did two circular walks through woods, fields, & neighbouring villages, with a stop for lunch in between at The Frog in Skirmett. The weather was kind and the views were great. It was good to get out & blow away some cobwebs….

Thames Walk – over, alongside, under, & on.

On 11 October seven of us had a great day out along the river.
After meeting at North Greenwich tube we started the day with a return trip on the Emirates Air Line cable car which is the best fun you can have & still use your Oyster card. We then followed the Thames Path up to Greenwich and had a good meal at the 18th C pub ‘The Cutty Sark’. Back in the sunshine we made an unscheduled detour into the Craft Market before continuing under the river via the Greenwich Foot Tunnel. From there we followed the river on the north side to Canary Wharf before boarding the Thames Clipper river bus to take us back to central London. A few of us disembarked at Tower Hill to make a spontaneous visit to the moving memorial to the 888,246 British & Colonial servicemen killed in World War One. The moat at the Tower of London was filled with a ‘flood’ of bright red handmade ceramic poppies – one for each of the dead. We waited as dusk fell for the daily ceremony of the Roll of Honour and The Last Post.
