A Bushy Park bash and a resuscitated ramble towards Brighton - this week's walking with London LDWA

A Bushy Park bash and a resuscitated ramble towards Brighton - this week's walking with London LDWA
The Long Distance Walkers Association

After the next couple of days the weather promises to be a little less scorchio than it has been recently, but it will still be warm enough to enjoy two more lovely summer walks to the full. Our midweek offering is Wednesday's fascinating-sounding trip around Bushy Park and on Saturday we have the chance to continue along the trail to Brighton. Scroll down for all the details (and don't put away your sunscreen just yet).
