Wolves Summer "Wetland Walk", 2nd July 2022

Geoff Castro writes: Following two years of enforced "lockdown", the annual ‘"Wolves Summer Walk" returns!’

This year the walk takes us past a "Wetland Centre" - the best urban wildlife site in Europe, according to its website - and a number of historic houses and pubs, one of which is haunted, although, not to my knowledge, by anyone from a previous London Wolves walk! Apart from the numerous pub stops planned there is an opportunity to visit a number of attractions nearby including the Wetland Centre (there is a charge to enter this), Chiswick House (entrance fee) and gardens (free entry) and Hogarth's House (free entry). For those who prefer not to take a leisurely stroll in the sunshine an alternative option by bus is available.

If you wish to join in this "extravaganza of culture" please meet at "The Rocket"(Wetherspoons) on Putney Wharf at 11-30 for a 12-00 start on Saturday 2nd July

Geoff’s original invitation

Geoff Castro writes on An Autumn "Ramble around Rotherhithe".

          By popular demand - or, requested by the Chairman at least - I have organised a belated "summer Wolves walk" for SATURDAY 9th OCTOBER. The tour will take us to London's oldest riverside wet dock, a city farm, an ecological park, a museum and the place from where the "Mayflower" set sail in 1620. As usual, there will be plenty of opportunity to sample the many historic hostelries en route as well as visit some of the many breweries on the "Bermondsey Beer Mile" at the end of the "official" walk if members wish. An TFL bus route runs very close to the whole trail providing an alternative for those who are unable to walk the whole distance or prefer to spend more time in the pub!

          So get your woollies and rainwear on - although I am sure the sun will be shining as it normally does on our summer walks - and join us for our first autumn Wolves walk on Saturday 9th October! Meet at "The Surrey Docks" (Wetherspoons), 185 Lower Road, SE16 2LW (near to Surrey Quays Overground station (15-20 mins direct  from London Bridge) and served by bus routes 47, 108, 188, 199 and 225) at 11-30am for a 12-00 start (or earlier for breakfast).  Riverboats from Central London stop at Greenland Surrey Quays 13 minutes walk (RB1,2, 6 and 6C)

Hope to see you there,

Geoff Castro.

-and if you're lucky, you may even end up in a pub to watch Conor captain England versus Andorra
