Hampstead and London Blind Ramblers Walk

Today the Hampstead Group enjoyed a walk with the London Blind Ramblers. The circular walk around Chorleywood had 18 walkers, with a 19th joining us half way.

As so often this year, we had to catch a rail replacement bus to get to our destination. This is us waiting for the connection! The leader, Michael Way, is at the rear, 7th from the left.

We aim to have at least one sighted walker for every one with a visual impairment.

Crossing the stiles slows us down a little. Next time you go on a ramble, just imagine going over a stile blind. It needs a lot of concentration...

We stopped for Lunch at The Cock.

We managed the 6 miles at an average speed of 2.3 miles per hour. Mind you, some of our group, such as Jem, probably covered twice that distance...

Jem is a rescued dog, and had a great time trying out being a guide dog for the day.

Everyone had a great day out.
