Here’s the next stretch of the Capital Ring walk. Streatham Common to Earlsfield.
Desborough Island is a 112-acre (0.45 km2) manmade island in the River Thames on the reach above Sunbury Lock in Surrey, England. It was formed in the 1930s by the digging of a channel – the Desborough Cut – by the Thames Conservancy as a meander cutoff of narrow width on the right bank. The island and cut are named after Lord Desborough, a chairman of the Thames Conservancy.
We downloaded a GPX file of the Croxley Boundary Walk, and followed said GPX using the phone. Well, there were several options, so we took the outer options each time thinking that would be the boundary walk… Not exactly. It wasn’t until we had done 2/3rds of the walk that we came across a sign post for the walk – the first one!!! Well we didn’t do the complete boundary walk, but hey, it got us out…
Another section of the Capital Ring with the London Appreciation Society. This section is from Beckenham to Crystal Palace.
London Appreciation Society visit to the Croxley Great Barn, and a walk around Rickmansworth.
