Walking Group


The  “Perambulators”  is  the Furzedown Project’s  walking  group.

Our  aim  is  to  offer  interesting  and challenging  walks  of  5 -12  miles within  easy  travelling  of  SW16.

Each  walk  is  mapped  & scouted.  We usually  meet  at  the  Project  at  9.00 before  setting  off  for  the  day. We  welcome new walkers.

Our next planned walk

Tuesday 30th April 2019

Bluebell Walk, about 8.5 miles. Led by Jean Ettridge & Susan Howard

We will walk to Streatham Common Station to catch the 9:46 train to East Croydon where we will change trains. We will alight at Oxted and return from Hurst Green, which is beyond the Freedom Pass Zone. The main attraction at this time of year is the magnificent display of bluebells in Staffhurst Wood, an area of woodland largely untouched since mediaeval times, if there has been rain it is likely to be muddy.  Our lunch stop will be the Royal Oak in Oxted, which has a garden for those who want to bring their own sandwiches.

Meet at the Project at 0900.

We look forward to you joining us.
