NEWS, EVENTS & THINGS TO DO

Thomas Radice, committee member of The Heath and Hampstead Society, has informed the author of some great walks that are arranged by The Society.

He states:
"Our monthly guided walks are essential for anyone interested in the history, conservation and ecology of The Heath."

For a minimal charge you can see The Heath afresh: listen to the songs of its passing migrant birds, walk along its old Saxon ditches and admire trees that have grown since the first Elizabeth was a child.

You can discover hidden gardens and secret arches, and learn to read The Heath in ways that will enrich every one of your visits."

Below is a schedule of all the walks planned for this year and more.

WALKS ON HAMPSTEAD HEATH

Walks are normally held on the first Sunday of every month except January. Most start from Burgh House, New End Square. London NW3 1LT - 10 minutes walk from Hampstead Tube Station (for map see www.burghhouse.org.uk).

(NB parking is extremely difficult locally, especially in spring and summer; the West Heath car park (behind Jack Straw's Castle) is more likely to have spaces than the East Heath car park.)

Starting times are either 2.30pm or 10.30am (9.30am for birds), depending on season and subject matter.
Walks last approximately two hours.
They do not necessarily follow made-up paths; you are recommended to wear suitable footwear as conditions may be rough or muddy.

You will be invited to make a minimum donation of £3.00 per adult, to be collected at the beginning of each walk, to help support future walks programmes and to promote the Society's activities generally.

Children are always welcome so long as they are suitably shod, can walk reasonable distances and are accompanied by an adult taking full responsibility for them.
