Wednesday Meetings, Weekends Away & Other Events

November 2019

Friday 1st to Sunday 3rd November

Chilterns Bunkhouse

Dave P

The Chilterns National Trust bunkhouse is a rustic restored barn surrounded by woodland on the Ashridge Estate near Tring. Despite its rural location, there are a couple of pubs within walking distance. Also Ivinghoe Beacon, the Ridgeway, Icknield Way and Chilterns Way paths are nearby. The Ashridge Estate is likely to be good for autumn colours in early November.

London Walk

John M

John will lead a hike along the North Bank, to complement our earlier hike along the South Bank. We shall have a look at the old City of London School, the grand front of the Temple, the Strand Palace, Cleopatra’s Needle, Trafalgar Square and some fearsome stone lions.  We shall then head up into the West End.

Please meet outside Tower Hill Underground Station after 10.00 am for a 1030 start.

I am still finalising the details for this walk. It may include an hour of leisure in the National Gallery.

You can bring some snacks but there will be plenty of places to stop for coffee and sandwiches.

Wednesday 20th November

Thai meal


Join us at the Thai House, Billericay, CM12 9BA at 7.30pm for a spicy treat as we go into autumn. Let Jim know by 16th November if you want to come.
