General notes on Blackheath Walks
Starting times: Leaders do their best to adhere to the train times published in the programme. However, the National Rail internet timetable predicts only about 12 weeks ahead (27 May at time of going to press), and there is often engineering work at weekends which may cause major changes to departure / arrival times.
So please, even if travelling by car: Before travelling, check train times with TfL (0343 222 1234; www.tfl.gov.uk) or National Rail (0345 748 4950); www.nationalrail.co.uk). When a choice of routes is given (marked ‘or’ in the programme), use the less affected, and if in doubt check with the leader.
Lunch: Lunch is generally about one hour (or as considered appropriate by the leader on the day) at a pub; for those who prefer, leaders will usually also be able to suggest a suitable area nearby for eating packed lunches.
Safety: Please be aware that you take part in all Ramblers’ walks at your own risk.
Dogs: Some walks are unsuitable for dogs; please check with the leader before bringing one.
'Strenuous' walks: any Blackheath walk over 12 miles is categorised as Strenuous, as these walks are ‘brisk’ by general standards. Please contact the walk leader if you have any queries about the walk.
