Walking the varied River Wandle Trail, Colliers Wood to Carshalton. Part 1

This is becoming a popular relaxing walk, and if you have not been able to come along, do come if you can.

This Walk is Part 1 of the Wandle Trail, with Part 2 on Monday 15th November

Come and join me and Keith on a lovely 6 mile walk following the River Wandle starting at Sainsbury's near Colliers Wood Tube Station and ending up at The Hope Pub near Carshalton Station.

We will meet at the cafe in Marks & Spencers on Merton High Street at 10.30 am for coffee and will start our walk at 11.00 am { to get to the Cafe,, you come out of Colliers Wood Station, and walk straight along the high street, cross over the traffic lights, and keep walking till you see the shopping mall on your left, walk over the bridge into the shopping mall go up the escalator and Marks and Spencer is on your right at the top of the escalator.}

Our walk will take us along river paths, passing water mills and weirs, and with plenty of wildlife to see, so time will be allowed to take photographs.

We will visit the wetlands board walk which is worth seeing, and will have a 30 minute break at the Café in Morden Hall Park, where toilets are also available.

After our break we will carry on along the Wandle Trail ending up at Carshalton Ponds where we leave the Wandle and make our way to The Hope Pub for a late lunch { please confirm if you want lunch as I need to book it}

With Carshalton Station being 5 minutes away with trains going direct to Victoria and London Blackfriars or Sutton{ where you can change to go to London Bridge}

If is advisable to wear walking boots, as some of the paths can get quite muddy, and if you have a knee problem or walk slow this walk is definitely not for you.

We have to be at the Cafe by 2.30 am at latest to order lunch, so we will not be waiting for anybody.

It would also be advisable to bring a nibble along if you want to as we will only be having a short stop in the Café.
