I have been eyeing this short walk for a spell….as I have always thought Brompton Cemetery
would make an interesting spot for an evening walk….The route has not been done before as it is a bit short in original formulation, but I think we could explore an extension down to the Thames via Imperial Wharf and along the Thames Path to Hammersmith, passing along the way: the Hurlingham Club, Fulham Palace
and various wharfs and new developments…a mixed bag I guess….
The Blue Anchor
on the riverbank in Hammersmith looks a good spot for post walk refreshies and meal for those who wish….
More information about the route can be found here
. As there are no instructions for this walk, I would suggest also printing out the map page from the OS Map tab with the alternate route highlighted.
