Changes to walks

Saturday 22 December

St Margarets to Hertford.

Central Line Underground services are unlikely to be running due to strike action and that most of the Metropolitan Line will also be shut. As previously published, the outward train (National Rail) for this walk will be the 9.12 from Liverpool Street, calling at Tottenham Hale at 9.25 and arriving at St Margarets at 9.51. You may wish to consider joining this train at Tottenham Hale, which is on the Victoria Line, rather than Liverpool Street.

Saturday 29 December

Tony Skill's NYE (almost) stomp.

Please note that this will now end at Chingford, rather than Epping Forest as previously planned. Revised description is as follows.

Meet ROYDON Station, Essex, 9.12 (Liverpool Street 8.35, Tottenham Hale, 8.47). What better way to lose your Christmas “excess” than by joining me on a sturdy 15.5-mile schlep to Chingford through lovely Hertfordshire countryside? We commence our quest along the Stort Valley Way before slipping into Essex v ia the Three Forests Way for lunch at Upshire (‘Woodbine’ pub). Thereafter, we plough into Epping Forest continuing along the Three Forests Way then onto other paths until we reach Chingford Overground Station (Zone 5). This is a fine and varied walk at a fast pace – potential for a festive drink or two back at Liverpool Street. Buy a single ticket to Roydon, then use Oyster Card or Contactless for the return journey. Leader: Tony Skill (07443 509 599)
