Event description

Description

Hammersmith Tube Station to Westminster: We're going back to the Thames for this walk beginning this time at Hammersmith Tube Station and walking across the Thames to join the Thames Path close to Harrods Depository, and from here we pass the Wetlands Centre where the old reservoirs of Barn Elms have been tranfsformed into this haven.. We are now on the boat race course and we will likely see rowers out on the river.

At Putney Bridge, the towers of Medieval parish churches on both sides of the river indicate the sign of an ancient river crossing. Once there was a ferry, then a wooden bridge and then what you now see.

We walk on now through Wandsworth Park and beyond past the heliport and past the pretty Albert Bridge, especially so at night when all lit up. The path takes us alongside Battersea Park and you can visit the London Peace Pagoda or explore the park itself. Now I think we may be able to walk straight on throught the newest development of the old Battersea Power station but we may have to wait and see. Last time I walked here major detours were in place.

There are many opt out points on both sides of the river especially on the latter part of this walk and Vauxhall is one where you may wish to call it a day, Pimlico and Victoria are across the Thames and also Westminster where I plan our official stop.

We'll start around 9.30/10.00 and will stop for coffee and lunch and probably end up in the pub for a drink after.

To make sure we are in flow with the weather, whatever it may be, please wear layers as this allows you to take off or add as temperature varies. Bring a bottle of water and a snack or two e.g some nuts or a protein bar incase you get the nibbles and also money for lunch and drinks.

Final details will be emailed out to those signing up at the latest the day before the walk.

We only have ten places available on this walk, so sign up as soon as you can!

With "Netwalking Women" we have weekend walks each month. We alternate the weekend days so that one month the walk is on a Saturday and then the next month on a Sunday.

It’s a day of investing in you, your health and wellbeing; of putting yourself first and as the opportunity arises, doing business in a different way! But you don’t have to be a business woman – you can be a woman who enjoys the company of other women, a woman who has chosen to take a day out from her job to look after herself, a mum who is child free for a time and choosing to spend her day in this way.

Walking is a wonderful way to get some exercise, to see a new part of a city of a corner of the countryside. It’s a wonderful way to socialise and to network too. When you’re walking you don’t need to keep eye contact and this can be very useful when challending and difficult conversations are taking place. In all my years of walking with women I have observed the most frivilous and lighthearted conversations one moment and the next a very deep and serious discussion the next. Walking allows all of that.

At the end of the day you’ll –

  • come away refreshed and with a clearer head having had a day in the fresh air

  • you’ll have met great women

  • you’ll have chatted, shared and learnt

  • you’ll have enjoyed coffee and lunch stops and perhaps an after walk drink

  • you’ll feel energised and exercised

  • you’ll be looking for the date of the next event..

This is time and space for you and it’s going to happen once a month.
