Hullo everyone,

Do you enjoy walking? Would you like to participate in something out of the ordinary? Very near to SE23?

I lead most of the walks on SE London's 'Green Chain Walk' long distance footpath network on behalf of 'Walk London' and the GCW itself. Literally thousands have taken part. Some of them have suggested something exceptional and possibly downright barmy.

At 11.30 PM (23.30) on Saturday 11th June we'll meet outside Crystal Palace railway station and walk the 22 miles to the Eastern extremity of the Green Chain at Erith. Yes, overnight. Just under half the route is 'off-road'.

Those who are mad enough to take part will benefit from a remarkable experience. Seeing the sun rise out of the North Sea and tackling steep paths in London's densest woodland to a tremendous morning chorus. You won't find that birdsong in the inner parts of London. You won't find the remarkable light of early dawn in woodland anywhere near the city centre either. This is the best and perhaps only chance.

There's no sign-up and this is wholly unofficial, not arranged by any body. It will be a wonderful experience but some matters must be clear before you partake...

I take absolutely no responsibility for your safety or welfare. Note that...


Is that clear and fully understood? If not, DO NOT TAKE PART.

If you do take part you'll have a wonderful night that you may never forget. Some serious suggestions...

* Bring plenty of water.
* Don't drink alcohol beforehand, it will dehydrate you.
* Respect the time. Walk quietly through populated areas.
* You must bring a torch. You'll need it for about 40 minutes.

It could be the best walk of the year. I look forward to seeing you outside Crystal Palace railway station at 11.30pm (23.30) on Saturday 11th June.

Feel free to contact me for any further information you might require. My number on the night will be 077 998 101 78. NOTE, this does not receive texts or voicemail.

All the best
