West London Ramblers

August 2013 Walks

There is continuing difficulty with travel at weekends largely due to engineering work.  Please check all train times. We will endeavour to put any changes on the home page of this website, but this cannot be guaranteed.

The group has to stay together, so give some thought to your level of fitness and the walk description before choosing your walk. Look for distance, hills and pace of the walk. West London country walks tend to have a reasonable pace.
