Walking Group 2018-12-06T15:02:10+00:00
The Walking Group meets on the second Sunday of each month, usually at Charton Station, at 10.00 in summertime and 10.30 during the winter; they are mostly within TfL travel zones. 
Our walks are mainly for ‘softies’ undertaken at a moderate pace to take into account the abilities of a range of walkers and usually less than 5 miles. 
Walkers are advised to bring bottled water and wear appropriate clothing for the weather – especially strong footwear. 
Walks are briefly described in the monthly emails so that walkers may decide if they are suitable for their ability and interests – this includes the travel plan, descriptions of the terrain, places of interest en route, availability of public toilets and places where take-away drinks and food may be purchased – we always end the walk at a cafe, pub or similar. 
If you would like to sign up to receive monthly emails or suggest some walks you know and love please contact Jill at: jillmo@btinternet.com

NEXT WALK: SUNDAY DECEMBER 9

Our next walk on Sunday, 9th December will be through three of London’s parks: St James’, Green and Hyde Parks; then there is the option to visit Winter Wonderland, if you wish, whilst the rest of us will walk on to see the decorations in Oxford Street, Regents Street and Carnaby Street.

We shall meet as usual at 10.30 at Charlton Station to take the bus to North Greenwich and the Jubilee line to Westminster, returning by train via Charing Cross.

PAST WALKS

Sunday, 11th November – a significant historical date, so we spent the 2 minutes of rememberance at 11 o’clock at the Charlton War Memorial outside St Luke’s Church before taking the bus to Blackheath and walking through Greenwich Park down to the National Maritime Museum to view their newly opened galleries (well worth a visit if you haven’t seen them!) and stop for refreshments in the cafe.

Sunday, 9th September, along part of the Isle of Dogs riverside path – with its splendid views back towards Greenwich – and on to Mudchute Farm, a green oasis with a backdrop of high rise commercial buildings.  This is largely a flat walk of about a couple of miles, with a splendid cafe, where those not wishing to walk along the higher level contours of the park can sample the fare and wait for the rest of us to return.  The walk continues across Millwall Park to end at Mudchute DLR for the return journey home.
