The Walking Group met on Sunday June 13, and enjoyed a local walk which took in Woodlands House, Greenwich Park and Enderby House. The walk was linked to two recent pieces in Grapevine, about the Angerstein (Woodlands House) and Enderby families.

Further walks are planned – watch this space for details.

Walking and coronavirus

The Walking Group normally meets on the second Sunday of each month, usually at Charlton Station, at 10.00 in summertime and 10.30 during the winter; the walks 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. 

You can check the calendar for details of future walks. If you would like to sign up to receive monthly emails or suggest some walks you know and love please contact Jill at:
