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 27th January

Coulsdon South to Banstead (Section 6 of the London Loop)  4.7 miles
Led by Di & Peter Norman

Meet outside the Project at 9:00 a.m.
We will walk to Streatham Common to catch the 9:46 to East Croydon and then on to Coulsdon South. Return will be Banstead to Streatham Common. Please note, there are no toilets at Banstead train station. This walk is within the Oyster Zone
Please note that much of this section of the London Loop is primarily a suburban rather than a countryside walk.
It starts with a steady ascent through residential parts of Coulsdon then levels out in high, open country, where five styles are encountered, to go through lavender fields and Oaks Park. Finally, a long, level and straight bridleway leads past High Downs prison to Banstead Downs Golf Course. Parts of the route can be a little muddy.
Café and toilets at Oaks Park. There are no pubs passed on this walk so lunch will be taken on a bench on Banstead Golf Course.
Coulsdon South to Banstead is a short walk and there may be some who may wish to continue the walk past Banstead to West Ewell, a further 4 miles. We are happy to lead this section if requested.
We look forward to you joining us.
