The next club race is the SWC 7m in November and the next club stroll is on the 27th October with Gail and John Elrick as conductors

Welcome to the Surrey Walking Club. The Club was originally formed in 1899 as a race walking club. We are still involved in race walking but we now promote a range of walking related activities including ultra distance walking and we have our own successful long distance social walking section known as the Strollers.

Next Club Strolls

Sunday 27th October Berkhamsted Circular. Conductors: Gail and John Elrick. Start Berkhamsted Station at 09:24 (Euston 08:55) Return trains 07, 19 and 40 mins past the hour.

Route Description: We first walked the Ashridge Circular in May when training for the 100. It is a circular route that traces the boundary of the Ashridge Estate in the Chilterns and although we knew parts of it quite well (e.g. the Ridgeway) we were pleasantly surprised to find some stretches not regularly walked with lovely open views so typical of the Chilterns. We also thought it would make a particularly good autumn stroll taking advantage of the changing colours of the trees so splendid in the Chilterns. To finish the walk we have adapted the route to use the nice path along the canal from Dudswell to Berkhamsted.  

Lunch will be in the Bridgewater Arms in Little Gaddesden (area also for picknic). Unfortunately winter closing times for the NT café at the Bridgewater Monument come into force this weekend as the clocks will have changed so we will be unlikely to reach it before closing.  We will however have a brief stop there.

Although the final part of the walk is easy walking, dusk will more certainly be upon us so we strongly recommend you bring a torch.

 Explorer 181. Distance approx. 20 miles.
