This walk goes through lovely parks and green spaces with lots of local history interest. We start at Nunhead- passing through Nunhead Cemetery- one of the "Magnificent Seven". A steep climb to "One Tree Hill" is rewarded with a wonderful view. We will walk through the Horniman Gardens where toilets are available. The path takes us through Sydenham Hill Woods with its 18thC tree lined path. The latish lunch stop will be Crystal Palace- cafe and toilets but packed lunch recommended.
We follow quiet roads to Beckenham Place Park, where the cafe may be open. Return from Ravensbourne or other nearby stations.
Recommended train: 9.37 from Victoria to Nunhead.
There are a few steep sections but the rewards are wonderful views of London. It may be muddy in places and poles may be useful if you use them.
There are plenty of drop out points- buses and trains.
