Walking Group

Walking

We aim to offer a range of walks to suit differing abilities and interests.

The Furzedown Strollers

Do you want to take some exercise outdoors?  Do you enjoy doing activities with other people?  Then the Furzedown Strollers Group is just what you are looking for.  We go on short, local walks, usually on Tooting Common.

We meet at 10:00am on the 3rd Wednesday of each month at the Furzedown Project, please check at reception. Robert Liston is the group leader pobble@cix.co.uk.

The Project Perambulators

The Project’s Perambulators is our long established walking group that typically offers walks of between 5 and 10 miles within easy travelling distance from the Project. This will generally be in the countryside near London or exploring parks, woods and water courses in London.

In addition we will organise occasional shorter walks that explore London’s rich history.

Each walk is mapped, scouted and led by an experienced guide. We usually meet at the Project and aim to have at least one walk each month. We welcome new walkers.

Next Perambulators walks:

Wandsworth Bridge to Clapham South – 7 miles, led by Jean Ettridge

Tuesday 28th May

Meet outside the Project to leave at 9:15. 

An urban and flat walk on mainly pavement – no mud,  with many opportunities to opt out to catch a bus.

We will walk to Tooting Bec station to catch the 219 bus to Wandsworth Bridge. Walk along the Thames Path and through Battersea Park, crossing the river by Chelsea Bridge. After a loop around Pimlico we walk along Royal Hospital Road and Chelsea Embankment to cross the river by Battersea Bridge. The route then takes us through a different part of Battersea Park, then through Latchmere Recreation Ground to Battersea Arts Centre and on to Clapham Common. We finish at Clapham South tube where we can catch the 249 bus home.

Bring a packed lunch.

Walks will be advertised here, and on the Furzedown Network Chat Group, and you can send your email to liz.richards@btinternet.com  for more details and notifications.
