HHS Guided Walk: The Hampstead Heath Extension

  • Spaniards End London, England United Kingdom (map)

The Heath & Hampstead Society organises monthly guided walks for anyone interested in the history, conservation and ecology of Hampstead Heath. Walks are usually held on the first Sunday of the month.

In August, discover the delights of the Heath extension, saved by the ‘benevolent tyrant’ Henrietta Barnett in 1907. Hear about its ponds, trees and its history, in the company of the man who knows it best. The walk is led by Tony Ghilchik, Trustee of the Society and Member of the Heath Sub-Committee.

The meeting point is the cattle trough and flower stall, Spaniard's End, near the Spaniard's Inn at 2:30 pm. Walks last approximately two hours.

You are recommended to wear suitable footwear as conditions may be rough or muddy. You will be invited to make a minimum donation of £5 per adult, collected at the beginning of each walk, to help support future development of the walks programme and the Society’s activities.

The Society doesn’t organise walks specifically for children but they 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.

Note that numbers may be restricted and booking may be needed. For further information contact Thomas Radice on 07941 528 034 or hhs.walks@gmail.com.
