Walks from YMCA Wimbledon from July to September 2018 led by Pam
All these walks start at 10am from the reception area of Wimbledon YMCA.
Tuesday 21 August – Wimbledon Common ponds
This local walk explores the 9 ponds on Wimbledon Common and Putney Heath. Catching the 93 bus from opposite the YMCA to the bus stop at Tibbets Corner, the walk starts beside the 7 Post Pond and then follows a circuitous route visiting each of the ponds in turn, ending up at Rushmere in the heart of Wimbledon village.
This walk is about 4.5 miles long on paths that can be very muddy after rain, which is why this walk has been scheduled for August in the hope of fine and dry weather.
Tuesday 4 September –a historic walk from Brompton Cemetery to Sloane Square
Taking the District line from Wimbledon station to West Brompton for a stroll through the cemetery and then through the blue-plaque strewn streets of Chelsea towards the grounds of the Chelsea Hospital where there are benches in the gardens and a decent café for lunch (plus toilets). From here it is a walk along the streets to Sloane Square for the District line back to Wimbledon.
About 4 miles along pavements and some busy roads.
