Please contact the Walk Leader to advise if you will be coming and which station you will be using. (see next paragraph ref GroupSave)
If you have a senior railcard and a bus pass please bring them with you. If you don’t have a railcard you can either speak to some members in advance (who you think might be going) and see if any of them are willing to make up a group with you to reduce the train fare; or get to the station early and again see if anyone would be willing to make up a group with you. Please remember that when in a group you must stay together for travelling purposes both going and returning.
Please note that we will be travelling by train as near to 9am as we can from Bracknell, Martins Heron and Ascot. We will meet in the 4th carriage down if poss. We will also gather together at the end of the train journey before travelling on to our final destination. Details of trains, tickets to get, where to meet and timings are on next sheet.
Car park 3 at Ascot is normally open and is free but NOT on race days and NOT if there is a conference at the Racecourse. If intending to park there, please check beforehand.
Please bring a packed lunch and either hot or cold drinks with you. We will not be stopping to purchase refreshments on route. After the walk is finished you are welcome to go your own way and find refreshments to purchase before heading home. n.b. if in a group you must stay together.
Attractions - Unless otherwise stated on the Leader's brief, if you are interested in visiting any of the attractions mentioned in the brief, or that are mentioned on the walk itself, then you are free to return to visit the attraction at the end of the walk. If the attraction is National Trust or English Heritage, don’t forget to bring your membership card. There will possibly be some attractions on route that we might all visit together during the walk. If this is the case, the details will be on the following sheet. We will also be passing many buildings, parks etc. with a lot of history. We can stop and admire these buildings, but again you might want to return to have another look after the walk, as we will have limited time on the walk to give some buildings the attention they deserve.
At the end of a section there is always the option to continue straight on to the next section but this would be unled and people must find their own way home.
On a safety note – this walk is through London with a lot of hard surfaces, however there are sections that go through woods and parks so if it is wet remember to wear waterproof footwear. Also, please make sure that purses and money are at the bottom of your rucksack and hard to get at by opportunist thieves. (This is because thieves could be around and this form of robbery is becoming more common in London)
