Shorter Walks

Group Leader: Michael Shore

Frequency: once a month, on a Thursday
Time: Varies, but normally morning starts
Place: Various locations
Length of walk: these are shorter and slower paced walks with plenty of breaks including lunch; there is in general the possibility to only do the morning part of the walk.

Information on the next walk is emailed to the Group Members one or two weeks prior to the next walk and publicised on our website.

These walks were suspended due to the Pandemic but they restarted in September. The first outing was to Epping Forest. In October, we visited the Olympic Park and Victoria Park.

In November, the group visited Surrey Docks and then walked from Wapping to the City.
