The London Loop (London Outer Orbital Path) is a walking route along a 150-mile loop around London (this is divided into 24 shorter sections, each one starting and finishing at train or Tube stations). It mainly passes through green areas in zones 5 and 6. This event is organised jointly with EuroClub (represented by Thomas Eros). This is a chance to go walking in the countryside and to enjoy talking to other people.
Today we will walk sections 14 and 15. Meet near the ticket office at Moor Park (on the Watford, Amersham or Chesham branches of the Metropolitan line, in zone 6). You can finish the walk at Hatch End after 5.0 miles/8 km, or continue another 4 miles/6 km to Stanmore.
We usually try to find a pub or cafe for a lunch break (if there are lots of us we will divide ourselves into smaller groups). Alternatively you may like to bring a sandwich with you to eat during the walk (you may not be allowed to eat this inside a pub or cafe).
Meet Mark or Thomas near the ticket office at Moor Park Tube station at 10:15am-10:30am. We will leave there promptly at 10:45am to start the walk. You can use the JourneyPlanner to plan your journey there (please check for engineering works which may affect you):
We cannot wait for you if you are late, because it is not fair on the others to delay the walk
Mark will be wearing an orange scarf or orange T-shirt, and his mobile number is [masked]. Thomas' mobile number is [masked]. Thomas' photo:
There is a £2 meetup charge for this event. Please pay Mark when you see him (or pay Thomas if Mark is not there). You will also need to bring enough cash for your Tube/train/bus tickets and meal/drinks.

Weather forecast for Stanmore:
The main walk should end by about 5pm (depending on the speed at which we walk, how long is required for the lunchtime break, and whether we lose the way) - this would enable you to be back in central London by about 6pm.
If you wish you can continue for a further 4 miles to Elstree (there is a train station at Elstree & Borehamwood - trains go to West Hampstead, St Pancras International, London Bridge, East Croydon etc).
Members are responsible for their own health and safety at all events organised by the London International Meetup group. Please always take care, and make sure that you have adequate health / travel insurance
