More InfoThis walk is about 2.5 miles in total but follows a "figure of 8" route to accommodate hounds that cannot walk the full distance - they can join in for the first loop (approx. 1 mile) and then stop as we pass the car park at the halfway point. If the weather is kind, we will have a picnic on the grass area afterwards, so please bring blankets and food - or you can purchase food from the Windmill Tea Rooms. It would be great if hounds (and their owners) stopping after the first loop would set up their blankets and relax while the rest of group completes the second loop to get back. We will also be holding a raffle in aid of Wimbledon Greyhound Welfare.
