Rambling

Circa 5 mile walks – we are a happy band of 50 plus members who enjoy the pleasure of each other’s company whilst also enjoying the ever-changing English countryside and usually walk around about 5 – 6 miles in about 2½ hours every fortnight, starting at 10.00am: unless specified otherwise.

Longer Walks – In addition, several of our most active members also enjoy an all-day outing most months, walking around 10 miles, often enjoying mid distance refreshments, in the form of a picnic stop, deep in the picturesque countryside. These do not clash with the ~5 mile walks, but are intended to complement them.

At the end of each walk, many of us enjoy a social chat, drink and/or lunch in a nearby pub. Some of our group are CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) members and like to make the pub visits memorable occasions.

Day & Time: Circa 5 mile walks, fortnightly on Wednesday at 10:00. Long 9 -10 mile walks, monthly, also usually on a Wednesday at 09.15.

Venue: Group members currently receive via the web or rambling newsletters detailing the future programme, the venues & directions, etc. The current programme is issued primarily in PDF N.B. Andy currently distributes the programme, by email, with attachments in both .pdf and .doc formats.

Boots with a good grip must be worn and waterproofs should be to hand if needed. Soft drinks and light refreshments (bring your own) are usually taken after about 90mins.

Please be sure to always have the right equipment, particularly boots, clothing and essentially, a generous supply of water, particularly on hot and humid days.

It is regretted but sorry No Dogs on walks as there may be stiles and we occasonally traverse fields containing animals.

New members are always welcome to come and to try walking with us for free.

GU12 5LP

Organiser: Andy Fuller / T 01252 315762 / M 07775 981059

We begin the day travelling by train to Waterloo and tube to Sloane Square. Here the walk starts, passing The Chelsea Hospital and making its way through side streets to Albert Bridge. Crossing the River Thames it takes in Battersea Park, where there will be a lunch stop, before returning over Albert Bridge to continue through Chelsea to the impressive Grade 1 listed Brompton Cemetery. The route then works its way to the trendy Kings Road and the Worlds End. Following the Kings Road back to Sloane Square excursions are made through side streets and squares to take in some of the varied architecture, picturesque and elegant, that Chelsea is noted for.

We then take the tube to Embankment, walk over Hungerford Bridge to the South Bank where for those who wish to have a meal a booking has been made at the Archduke Restaurant near the Festival Hall for 6pm. The cost (3 courses with options for each) including service charge will be £26.00.

We will all meet at Ash Vale station at 09.00 to allow enough time to organize group tickets to catch the 09.39 to Waterloo. At the Group Ticket rate the fare is approximately £21 per person, payable on the day.

If you are interested in taking part please contact Andy Fuller for more information and an application form.

The closing date for applications is the 29th November 2019.
