All comers£0.00 

Just a simple exploration to enjoy the Thames and some of the places alongside it at the time of our Thames and Totally Thames Project 

We will meet for coffee at the Dolce Crema, 3 The Broadway, Barnes, London SW13 0NY.  

To find the Dolce Crema, cross the road from Barnes Bridge Station and go to the rhs of the bridge to get onto the Thamesside Path.  Basically go under the railway line and loop back on yourself turning left under the bridge:  walk between the wall and the river as far as The White Hart.  At the White Hart turn left onto the pavement and you should see Dolce Crema just the other side of the roundabout.   Alternatively walk along the A3003 - simpler, but it is a noisy road and a rather narrow pavement.  Here's the map link:   

We will leave the Dolce Crema at 11.00am as usual, we will rejoin the Thames Path at the White Hart and walk west as far as Kew Bridge along a pleasant and well-made path.   On our way, we will enoy views of the River, hopefully some rowers on the river and views of Strand on the Green opposite.   We will cross Kew bridge, turn right to Strand-on-the-Green for lunch at one of the many pubs and explore the quirkeness of this area.

After lunch there will be a number of choices.   Some may wish to visit the Waterman's Arts Centre, where there is an Exhibition Rivers of the World - a Retrospective from 2017 and 18.  Others may wish to make their way to Kew Bridge Station or pick up a bus to get them home.  Other alternatives are to visit Kew Gardens, or to walk further and take the path back to Mortlake or Barnes.

Whatever you decide, the choice is yours and all are welcome!

THIS IS A CHANGE TO THE ORIGINALLY POSTED EVENT BECAUSE IN DOING OUR RESEARCH FOR THIS WALK WE FOUND THE NORTH SIDE GENERALLY LESS INTERESTING BECAUSE OF A LONG STRETCH OF ROAD WALKING AT HARTINGTON AND GROVE PARK ROADS.   Anyone who wants to go upon onto Barnes Pedestrian Bridge and take photos of the trains etc. is of course welcome to do so at the beginning of the walk.
