Walks in London, Chesham and Amersham
Thank you to everyone who has supported our walks. Who would have thought Walthamstow would hide such historic buildings in a tiny oasis off the modern high street?
We travel up to the appropriate station either from Rickmansworth or Croxley stations to take the first train after 9.30. We are met by Colin Oakes, our blue badge guide, who explains to us the history of the area. The walks are at a gentle pace and last approximately 2 hours. At the end of the walk some stay for lunch.
Each walk is £6.00 per person and cheques should be made out to Colin Oakes. Walks can be booked two months in advance at the monthly meetings or make contact with the organisers via the "Click to send a message!" button on the right. Payment must be made at the time of booking. Because of the need to sort out the payment and paperwork in advance refunds can now only be given for cancellations made up to 2 o’clock on the day before the walk. Please do not combine a cheque payment for two walks!
