Winter Walk on Barnes Common

1:00pm, Saturday January 21st, 2023

Vine Road Recreation Ground, SW13 0NE

A social walk around Barnes Common, exploring the wildlife of this important space with a particular focus on the variety of trees present.

On our Winter Walk we will explore the spaces and species that make Barnes Common what is it today! We will observe and chat about plants, animals and history, as we explore the different habitats. We will walk as a group around the Common but we will be mindful of people who would prefer to set their own pace.

This walk is approx 2.5km. It is suitable for people of all ages but will be aimed mostly at an adult audience. For younger people please consider our morning Yaffles Club. It covers a mixture of paths and unpaved surfaces which may be challenging with a buggy. There will however be alternatives paths which join up with the route at the planned stopping points.

The walk will cover different types of ground conditions, so sturdy waterproof footwear is recommended and as the event is entirely outdoors we remind people to dress appropriately for the weather on the day.

Bring a bottle of water or hot drink with you for the stroll.

During the walk we encourage people to take photos of the Common and the wildlife around them and to share them on social media using #barnescommonwalks

The walk will begin at the Vine Road Recreation Ground near the Pavilion.
