Water beach and Wickam to Ely and the ship of the Fens

Railway Station

£10.00

Description
Just an Hour from Central London brings us to the pretty village of Waterbeach in Cambridgeshire. Nestled on the banks of the river Cam and on the Southern edge of the sprawling Fens. We leave the village following the River Cam North. Straight away the fens open out to large fields and big open skies. Following the flow of the river as it makes its way to the sea. We reach the aptly named Adventures Fen and here we leave the river and make our way across to Wicken fen. This important wet land is home to over wintering birds and a stop off for migrating flocks it is also home to a herd of Konik ponies. The within the fen is the last working wooden wind pump to be found in the area.Soon after we leave Wicken we will be able to spot our finish point the Beautiful Ely Cathedral , visible for miles around. It has the nick name the ship of the Fens as being built on a small rise in the ground it seemingly floats on the fens. On reaching the town you are welcome to join us for a drink in one of the many pubs or you may wish to visit the Cathedral before you catch your train home.

Sunset and Moonlight Hike: Seaford Head, Seven Sisters and Beachyhead

PRICE INCLUDES TRAIN TRAVEL. IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO TRAVEL AS A GROUP, THE PRICE IS £10.

I've added a second leader so I'm going to add a few more spaces.

We are one day off from the full moon...let's shun convention and go for a night hike! This classic coastal walk is probably the best day trip out of London. Instead of getting up with the lark we can have a lie-in and lazily head out to Seaford in the afternoon. The undulating steep hills of the Seven Sisters and the stiff climb up to Beachyhead await us, with the stunning white chalk cliffs illuminated by the light of the moon.

Note that this isn't an overnighter, rather, we are just getting a late start and letting the rapidly encroaching afternoon darkness take over before heading back to London.

You must bring a headtorch (and spare batteries!) for this hike as the skies in England tend to be on the cloudy side. Low tide is at 18:48, so as long as it safe to do so, we will cross the Cuckmere, so bring a pair of old trainers or crocs to do the crossing in.

Sunset is at 16:54, the moon will be high in the sky. Noctambulate with me!

GRADE: Challenging. You must be confident in your fitness level as we are going to be taking this at a moderately fast pace without a lot of stopping. This is a very hard walk with over 700 m of elevation gain over at least 10 hills and clocks in over 14 miles (22.5 km). Be prepared for the river crossing- as long as it is safe to do so, we will cross at Cuckmere rather than go around to the bridge. If you are up for adventure, this is the hike for you.

MEETING POINT: London Victoria at 12:40. I'll be wearing a dayglow yellow shirt just outside the Monsoon shop near platform 11.

TRAINS: 12:54 from London Victoria to Seaford, arrives 14:20 with a change at Lewes. 1 hour 52m travel time.

If you wish to drive, you can park in Lewes and take the Seaford-bound train with us, and then return to your car via the train to Eastbourne.

HIKE ENDS: Approx 20:00 Eastbourne Station

COST: £24 inclusive return train travel and hike payable on RSVP. If you wish to make your own way there, just change the amount you pay on paypal to £10 and you won't be included on the group ticket.

WHAT TO BRING: YOU MUST HAVE A HEAD TORCH. I WILL SEND YOU HOME IF YOU DO NOT. Consider yourself warned. I would also bring more layers than you normally do- when we stop for dinner, you will get cold. Lunch, snacks, water, suitable clothing and hiking footwear. LClick here for kit list.

Trent Country Park, Enfield Chase and Forty Hall - Oyster Card Friendly Hike

Cockfosters Station

£10.00

I'm repeating this lovely winter warmer hike due to the insane amount of demand I had for it

Take the Piccadilly line to the very last stop for this surprisingly rural hike. While the area around the train station may not look like a promising start to the hike, we will be in really lovely countryside almost immediately. We soon strike out to peaceful woodland and rolling hills of Trent Park. Formerly the gardens and grounds of a posh manor house, the extensive parklands are open for us to enjoy. We make our way through Enfield Chase, Henry IV's former hunting grounds, and find the remains of a medieval moat. From here, we will loop around Forty Hall Estate, through winter forest with skeletal trees along our path. Taking the time to appreciate winter with a countryside hike is a great way to get through winter!

GRADE: Easy, with gentle rolling hills in places. 10 miles/16km. There could be muddy sections, but for the most part, we'll stick to good paths. About 4 hours hiking time, 120m elevation gain.

COST: £10 organizer fee paypal upon RSVP

TRAINS: Oyster card friendly! Piccadilly Line to Cockfosters

HIKE STARTS: 10:00 Cockfosters station. Meet me just outside the ticket barriers, as tucked away as a hiking group at a tube station can be

LUNCH: Pack lunch

HIKE FINISHES: Approx 14:30 Turkey Street station, which is on the Overground

HIKE LEADER: Sara

WHAT TO BRING: lunch, snacks, water, suitable clothing and hiking footwear. Click here for kit list.
