For many years the Club has been able to offer our members an annual ‘London walk’, thanks to the extensive knowledge and research of members – particularly Audrey Osborne and David Allard recently.
We are very pleased to announce that two Club members have responded to our call for someone to take on the mantle of leading London walks.
So please come and support Marcus on his first London walk for the CRC on Saturday 27th April 2024. Focused on Hampstead, the walk of 9/10 miles starts at Hampstead Heath tube station at 10.30. After exploring the nearby features of interest, the walk proceeds to West Heath, the Hill Gardens and Pergola, Golders Hill Park, Sandy Heath, Kenwood House and, of course, Hampstead Heath and Parliament Hill. The walk will return to Hampstead Heath tube by 18.00.
For more information and to let Marcus know you are coming, please text him on 07754 100266.
