About the Walking Group
We are a friendly group of people living in and around Bowes Park and Bounds Green who enjoy walking in congenial company. Monthly weekend walks range from the local to central London to the rural. We aim to walk all year round – only really bad weather will stop us! New walkers always welcome - come and try us out. We also hold occasional social events.
NB: Always dress appropriately (rural walks may be muddy) and take water with you.
More information from firstname.lastname@example.org.

Weekend walks 2015
From W-at-S station we head down Church Lane to reach the parish church of St Mary & St Andrew and then head up Perrywood Lane turning left at an arrow post to head across fields. En route we will have views of the Woodhall Estate and its 18th century house which is let to Heath Mount School (an independent girls preparatory school). The Estate, which is a working farm, has also been used as a film location for ITV’s Foyle’s War, Stephen Poliakoff’s the Lost Prince and My Uncle Silas by H E Bates. On reaching the end of the fields we cross over the road to enter the Estate and walk past its lake and some farm buildings before we do a U-turn across a couple of low stone bridges to head directly south along the valley of the River Beane passing through Stapleford, Waterford and the pretty Waterford Marshes Nature Reserve. We then head back to Hertford North Station via tracks and quiet side roads. We have the choice of taking post-walk refreshment in the Pub opposite the station or catching the next train back to Bowes Park and heading for The Step. Return trains from Hertford North are at 13 and 43 minutes past the hour.

Saturday 28 June 2014 – Wanstead to Chingford
We got to Wanstead in 50 minutes. Weather was as forecast. One heavy downpour while we had coffee and lunch, and another when leaving Wanstead Park. After that only a few light showers and wet grass to contend with. It was an interesting, green, easy walking, no roads walk. And the information centre was open in Wanstead Park. Despite being a Centenary Epping Forest Walk, it is not waymarked. Having pre-walked it twice, the final route still varied slightly. Definitely a walk to be done with somebody who roughly knows it. But we got to Chingford, earlier than expected, and enjoyed the usual pub finish. Despite some rain, a good walk.
Wednesday 11 June 2014 - Enfield to Bowes Park
