London Loop: Petts Wood to Hamsey Green

Pressure of work has led to a delay in posting these, but better late than never!

Walks Organiser Jane Rosoux kindly sent in these photos of her 18 mile walk on Saturday May 9th along part of the London Loop. Although the skies were overcast and some of the walk was quite urban in feel, there were still many points of interest and scenic beauty. Only two people accompanied Jane on this walk...

Jill and Clare pictured at a Greenwich Meridian marker stone.

The handsome Mandarin Duck was spotted on the lowest of the three Keston Ponds, where the party had a picnic lunch.

The walk passed the site where William Wilberforce first announced to Prime Minister Pitt that he was going to attempt to abolish slavery. A plaque marks the site.

This wisteria was growing at Heathfield gardens

And finally Jane spotted this beautifully blasted tree...
