Thursday 6th - Nature Ramble Orchis Bank Down House

The July nature ramble on Thursday 6 July will see us visit the village of Downe, where Charles Darwin wrote On the Origin of Species. On the way we'll stride through a fine country park, enjoy a pretty green lane, and wander through the 'orchis bank' where Darwin made some of his most important observations - perhaps the most precious nature reserve in all London. There might be time for a visit to his home at Down House too - we'll certainly see outside it.

We will be walking five miles from Farnborough to Downe. There is a café in the country park near the start. If we do have time to go into Down House, entry is £11.80 / concessions £10.60. Bring a snack, drink and Oyster or Freedom Pass. Back at Stratford about 5pm.

Meet: 10am at Stratford station, outside Jubilee line platforms 13-15. Just turn up, no need to book. If we do have time to go into Down House, entry is £11.80 / concessions £10.60. Bring a snack, drink and Oyster or Freedom Pass. Back at Stratford about 5pm.

Tuesday 15th - Nature Ramble The new 'Nature Ramble' series of walks replaces the ‘Lucky Dip’ walks that ended with the Rainham Marshes visit in December. Each month, walk leader and guidebook author Peter Aylmer will take you to one of London's great natural glories - a nature reserve, woodland, heath, site of special scientific interest or similar. Like the Lucky Dip walks, expect around six miles of easy walking and at least one cafe along the way.

Meet: 10am at Stratford station, outside Jubilee line platforms 13-15. Just turn up, no need to book. Bring a snack, drink and Oyster or Freedom Pass. Back about 4.
