Rambling 2017

December 2016

Green Chain Walk, Falconwood to Crystal Palace, South Bank Ramblers.  12 miles meant a fast walk to finish in daylight after a late start and long lunch break.  Bits of the route were familiar from other Green Chain walks.  There is not much left that I have not done, either by myself or with a group.

Highgate to Walthamstow Marshes.  South Bank Ramblers.  Initially along an old railway line through a strip of woodland. Familiar ground after Springfield Marina.  Left the group at Lea Bridge Road to walk to Stratford along the river rather than taking the train from Clapton.  Pace frustratingly slow.

Benfield Circular.  South Bank, Epsom and Croydon groups.  A short walk on New Year’s Eve, farmland, woods, common. Well paced and enjoyable.

January

Thames Path to Barrier, then Green Chain walk to Charlton village and down to Sainsburys.  Solo.  The nearest hilly footpath walk.

Thames Path to Greenwich Foot Tunnel, then along Thames Path from Island Gardens to Tower Bridge, much shorter than the south Bank route.
