LONDON RIVERS WEEK: Hogsmill Highlights Guided Walk
June 2 @ 9:30 am - 3:30 pm
A guided walk along the Hogsmill River, a precious chalk stream, from Berrylands Nature Reserve in Surbiton to Bourne Hall at the river’s source. You will be guided along the river by members of the Catchment Partnership; a group of organisations that are working together to improve the river for people and wildlife.
You’ll learn all about this rare habitat, the threats it faces and the fantastic work that’s been carried out to help it. The walk will be around 8.5 km long from start to finish. Only want to join us for part of the walk? That’s fine! We’ll be stopping for a lunch break at Ewell Court House, and starting the second leg at 2pm so feel free to join us there instead. If you’d like to finish early then we’ll be walking past many transport links on the way where you can finish the walk at a point to suit you.
Booking essential. Book your place on the walk via our Eventbrite page: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/hogsmill-highlights-guided-walk-tickets-59060991014
Meet outside Berrylands Scout Hut. Stirling Walk, Surbiton KT5 9HY. Walk will take place from 9.45 – 15.30 (with an option to extend this to 16.30 by taking an alternative route back to Ewell Court House)
London Rivers Week runs from Saturday May 25 – Sunday June 2 2019
Launch opening event – Saturday May 25
There are more than 600km of waterway running through the capital, the same distance between Brighton and Edinburgh. In the past London’s rivers were often hidden behind buildings or buried underground. But now many lost rivers are now being brought back to life – restored back to as natural a state as possible. London Rivers Week helps you find these rewilded rivers and discover what they can do for you, our city and its wildlife.
