[New!] [Weekend Short Walk] Colliers Wood to Putney : Wandle Trail, Thames Path, Bishops Palace

Meet at Colliers Wood tube station (zone 3) at 12:00

5.5 miles, no ascent

This is an easy short walk along the Wandle Trail to the Thames, then along the Thames Path to Putney, with a choice of riverside pubs (Wetherspoons, and Youngs), churches (at either end of the bridge) and Bishop's Palace (tea room, free entry).

For a longer walk, you could carry on along the Thames Path to Hammersmith

This is an experiment to see if there is a demand for short walks on a weekend

3 walkers enjoyed this rather urban walk. Enhanced by a stop at Earlsfield for iced chocolate frappé, croissant and pastéis de Nata.

Consensus was that it's not a real replacement for a proper country walk but a reasonable alternative if you had a pint too many on Friday Eve.
