<![CDATA[Evening Walk 1924 British Empire Exhibition]]> British Empire Exhibition Wembley 1924-25

 

This is a 3-4 mile walk including the exhibition site, rescheduled due to the train strikes.

 Very few walks offer such a contrast between the remains of a rural river, light industry from the 1930s and beyond, and the recently emerged city-scale development at Wembley. The British Empire Exhibition was a post-WW I flourish on former pleasure grounds, with a wide range of exhibition buildings representing the colonies of the time, and a funfair as well. Wembley Stadium was built in the same period, and only rebuilt recently. 

 This walk will approach the site via the River Brent and Wealdstone Brook, trace its way through the industrial estate and cross the long abandoned railway route, to visit the stadium, see its Olympic remains, and try to grasp the scale of the contemporary developments surrounding the stadium. Apart from a corbel from one of the pavilions, very little of the Exhibition remains on site; the legacy can be occasionally seen in the place names. For art deco lovers we will pass the former Empire Pool. 

 Meet at Stonebridge Park tube entrance at 18.45

<![CDATA[The Can-Can. Stage 5. Faversham to Chartham]]> Can-Can (Canterbury Canter)

Stage 5 Faversham to Chartham

Saturday 9 July

10 ½ miles over the North Downs. Hilly (total ascent about 730 feet). No drop-out points.

There are no refreshment stops so bring a packed lunch, snacks and water.

The walk explores Blean Woods and the North Downs. Look out for blackcurrant and apple orchards, vineyards, hop gardens and oast houses.

We leave Faversham past St Catherine’s Church (probably closed). We go past Brenley Farm (2 miles) and after 3 miles we reach St Peter & Paul’s church at Boughton-under-Blean which is mentioned in Canterbury Tales. This church is probably also closed but if not, it has a stamp for pilgrims.

We go through the hamlet of South Street (4 miles) and stop for lunch with a sea view (well, the Swale Estuary). We will try to make some time to talk about Chick Lit - another one of the Canterbury Tales (see below).

After lunch we climb up through Winterbourne Woods (5 miles) which is part of the ancient woodland of Blean. We then descend out of the woods (6 miles) through the wonderfully-named village of Old Wives Leas (7 miles) to the Stour Valley (8 miles).

We go past Chilham Lakes through the hamlet of Shalmsford Street (9 miles)

We will go in Chartham Church if it’s open before finishing at Chartham Station (10 ½ miles). There’s a pub if you fancy a drink or there’s time before the train.

Travel and meeting details have been sent to members.

Bob

16 miles. Hilly. No drop-out points.

I can’t remember if I’ve led this walk for CLOG before so here it is.

A circular walk from Penshurst station at Chiddingstone Causeway.

It links the three churches at Four Elms, Hever and Markbeech taking in Bough Beech Reservoir and Chiddingstone Village along the way. Bring a packed lunch, snacks and water.

Quick water stops at:

  • Chiddingstone Castle (about 11.15am after 2 miles).
  • Markbeech Churchyard (about 12.45pm after 5 miles)

Late lunch at Hever recreation ground (about 1.30pm after 6 ½ miles).

Quick water stops at:

<![CDATA[Cycle ride: 5 forts, 1 cycle ferry, 2 castles and several pretty villages 30 miles]]> 5 forts (Tilbury, Coalhouse, New Tavern, Shornemead and Upnor), 2 castles (Cooling and Upnor) plus a ferry ride across the Thames and visits to some pretty villages.

We start at East Tilbury station and head towards our first fort, Coalhouse Fort http://coalhousefortpark.org.uk where we may stop for coffee, then we pedal by the river past a WW2 radar tower and other WW2 defences until we get to Tilbury Fort http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/tilbury-fort/.  We will probably only look at the outside of Tilbury Fort and then we hop on a little ferry with our bikes to cross the Thames to Gravesend.  https://www.thurrock.gov.uk/ferry-services/tilbury-to-gravesend-ferry-service

We cycle out of Gravesend past New Tavern fort in Fort Gardens, along the river and then into the Shorne marshes where we visit the remains of Shornemead fort.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shornemead_Fort

Lunch is planned for the Six Bells pub at Cliffe, then we cycle past Cooling Castle and then south to the beautiful village of Upnor where we may stop for coffee and have a peak at Upnor Castle (which is actually a fort).

From Upnor it is a short ride to Strood where the ride finishes.

 Meeting up

 Be on the train that leaves Stratford at 10:24 getting into East Tilbury at 11:01

http://trains.im/schedule/F44619/2017/09/30/

Cost single:  £5.70 with discount card or £5.90 super off peak return with discount card (more if you don't have a discount card).

Other costs:

The ferry seems to cost £3 return if we are off peak (which I assume Saturday is but it isn't clear from the website) or £4 anytime single.

Getting back from Strood.

Either get the Highspeed train from Strood to Stratford International but that costs £13:00 with discount card 

or

Get a single from Strood to Gravesend £3.35 with discount card, catch the ferry back to Tilbury and catch the train from Tilbury Town to Stratford (covered by the ticket you bought in the morning if you get a return which is almost the same price as a single.

If you use the latter, the total travel costs should be:  £5.90 (return Stratford to Tilbury East) if you have a discount card +£3 for off-peak return on ferry (assuming they count Saturday as off-peak)+£3.35.

If you use the HS train to get back, the total travel costs should be £5.70+£3+£13
