Start time 9:30

On Sunday 16 September 1988, Colin Saunders of what was then the London Area of the Ramblers’ Association led a 12-mile walk along the Wandle Trail from Wandsworth to Croydon on its very first day of existence. There was much publicity including Time Out and LBC Radio and over 200 people turned up!
This time, as part of the Wandle Valley Fortnight, there will be at least six walks, ranging from 2.5 miles to 17 miles and led by members of the Wandle Valley Forum, Ramblers and Long-Distance Walkers Association.
“The Whole Thing Plus” (Brisk pace), led by Colin Saunders of the North London & South Herts group, who led the original launch event.
A joint walk with the London Group of the Long-Distance Walkers Association.
Starts 09.30am from the forecourt of Charing Cross station then along the Thames Path to Wandsworth to pick up the Wandle Trail and follow it to East Croydon station.
Lunch will be at cafes or picnic in Morden Hall Park.
Colin is the author of Guidebooks to the Capital Ring, London Loop, North Downs Way and soon-to-be-published Pymmes Book Trail and will be happy to sign your copies if you bring them along.
