Westcombe Society Walk for Macmillan – Sunday 15th September

Our annual walk will take place on Sunday 15th September.

We are meeting at Westcombe Park station at 9.30am to catch the 10:02am train to Erith.  Please allow enough time to buy your train ticket.

From there we will join the Green Chain Walk from Erith Riverside to Bostall Woods (distance 3.5 miles) and enjoy a panoramic view of the Thames Estuary before heading up to higher climes at Bostall Woods and London’s hidden heathland!

A small diversion from the route will bring us to Lesnes Abbey and Lesnes Abbey Woods.

There is a café in the Abbey gardens where snacks and refreshments are available.  For those not wanting to proceed further, there are bus routes and Abbey Wood station nearby for an easy journey back to Westcombe Park/Greenwich.

We will then continue on to Oxleas Woods (distance 2.5 miles).  This route has delightful stretches of ancient woodland revealing nature in all its variety and splendour.

There is a £10 walk subscription per adult, 100% of which will go Macmillan.  Please also feel free to do your own fund raising.

The walk is suitable for adults and children, although some stretches may be difficult for buggies.

A bottle of water will be supplied.  You may wish to bring a packed lunch.

Please book your place in advance by calling Caroline Owens on 020 8853 0948 or by emailing Caroline at r.c.owens@btinternet.com.
