Although our regular group walks have been suspended for the time being, we are still keen to encourage people to enjoy walking in our area.  Walking is still a valuable exercise for both mind and body and should not be dismissed if you are fit and well.  The advice is to go out alone or with people you share your home with, being conscious of following social distancing guidance. 

Here are links to some local walks devised by CCRA members:

Three local walks

Secret Charlton Walk

I-Spy Charlton quiz walk

Westcombe Park Walk

Charlton Hidden Stories

Green Corridors and Parks of Deptford

Tree Walks

Keep walking and keep well!  There is a link below from Living Streets (see ‘About Us’ in the link for more information about this charity) with their advice on staying safe and keeping well and Greenwich Council’s most recent advice.

Walking and coronavirus

The Walking Group 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:
