Hullo SE23.

With many thanks to the moderator I'm just writing to tell you about a local walk next weekend that I think many would enjoy.

On Saturday 31st January 'Walk London' invites all from SE23 to a leisurely taster of the Green Chain Walks forthcoming extension from Nunhead to Crystal Palace. Generally, it follows the disused railway line but diverts to make the most of local landscape, views and, places of interest.

The walk is free of charge, starts at 11am outside Nunhead railway station and, is 6.5 miles long. Of course, you may break-off at any time. There are some steep slopes and muddy sections.

We'll visit Nunhead Cemetery, One Tree Hill, Walters Way, Horniman Gardens, Sydenham Hill Woods nature reserve, the site of Upper Sydenham station, Crystal Palace Park and, the Victorian Dinosaur exhibit. We conclude at the Caf? near the Park's Penge Gate. The walk should take 3 or 4 hours and the Walk Leader will give a brief historical commentaries. Experts are welcome to correct him! You can see the route on the web at...

This walk is truly interesting throughout and all are more than welcome. Definitely a case of 'the more the merrier'. I very much hope you can join in.
