8 mile saunter around Richmond

We'll meet at the car park to the west of Ham House right by the Thames and then make our way to Richmond Park, with lunch at Pembroke Lodge with panoramic views of the Thames. We'll then descend down to the river and back to Ham House.

 Please do wear suitable footwear for a walk of this length.

Usual £2 in the Wisy pot.

    Sorry you missed us. The film crew in the car park was a big problem. I nearly missed out too as the group had shifted 100 yards from the original meet up away from the river. Tom did come down to do a final check of the car park before we set out at 11.20. I look forward to seeing you on a future walk. Peter H.

    Reached my car this morning to discover it had been vandalised whilst I was away on business earlier this week. After taking photos and talking to neighbours I left home 20 mins later than planned which resulted in me reaching the meeting point at 11:10am and no sign of everyone. Could not find details of the walk route or a number to call on the meetup web-site so was not able to catch up so instead went on a solo walk round the park for a couple of hours. Apologies for not joining everyone - hope to meet you all next time. Amit

    So many excuses! Well, here's mine, not the weather. Thanks to Network No-Rail I found it would have taken me 6 hours to travel the 27 miles to the rendezvous, and back, rather longer than I would have spent on the walk I suspect. It seems there are some habits Britain can never manage to get out of, like GMT and closing down public transport on Sundays. You lucky Londoners in your onshore island paradise!

    Hi everyone

    PARKING UPDATE. A film crew was in the Ham Street car park today so there might be limited spaces there tomorrow. There is parking along Ham Street, Riverside Walk and around the green by the junction by Ham Street and Riverside Walk.

    I've checked a couple of forecasts and weather is looking more promising but do bring suitable clothing.

    See you tomorrow.

    Hi everyone

    Latest weather forecast for tomorrow is 'few showers' so please bring suitable clothing.

    Also, I would suggest bringing a litre or more of water for a walk of this duration.

    See you tomorrow

    Debating whether or not I can do this as I only came off crutches yesterday having been knocked down by a bike. I might try to do part of it if my knee doesn't give way. If there are people on a waiting list please let me know and I will then remove myself.
