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

Monday 14th October – Leith Hill Circular – 6.5 miles. Led by Liz & Mike Richards

 Meet outside the Project at 09.30

We will walk to Streatham Common to catch a train to Holmwood (changing at Sutton), £5.35 return using a Freedom Pass and Senior Railcard.

From Holmwood we will walk to the Folly on the top of Leith Hill, 2 hours.  There is a National Trust kiosk there selling drinks and delicious cakes but no toilets. Then we will descend to Coldharbour, 45 mins, and stop for a pub/picnic lunch at the Plough Inn. There are benches opposite for those bringing a picnic lunch.

From Coldharbour we will return to Holmwood, 1 hour, and catch the 1628 train.

The walk is likely to be wet and muddy, so walking boots are recommended.

We look forward to you joining us.
