Description

This walk takes us through the purple haze of Mayfield Lavender – a huge, fragrant swathe of deep, indigo flowers, as well as golden wheat fields of Surrey and shaded woodland areas.

As Lavender is in season now it is the time to experience the unique beauty of lavender farm. The lavender fields of Provence are much larger, and more famous, but we should also discover the beauty at our doorstep.

Meeting time: at 10:15 in Clapham Junction station.

We will make your way to the platform at 10:29am. If you are late I’m afraid we will not be able to wait and you will be missing the trip. Of course if you want, you can try to catch up with us at the platform, but the host will be making sure the group gets on the right train, so you will have to figure out the way.  Also, you will have to find another way of getting in as I will have your train ticket.

Train: You will be taking the 10:39 train. We will change in East Croydon (10:48) for 10:54 train to Chipstead. We will arrive at 11:14.

Meeting point: You will meet at Clapham Junction Station at the main entrance, next to the ticket offices and Costa Coffee. When you arrive at the station, please ask a staff member for the main entrance (St John’s Hill) as there are a couple of entrances available. It is the one with Sainsbury’s and Costa. If you don’t know the station, please give yourself enough time to find the right spot.

Our host will be holding black balloon with the logo.  

Difficulty: 4 out of 10

Distance: approximately 14km (8.7 miles)

Time: It will be a leisurely walk and should take between 3-4 hours. We will also stop for one hour for lunch. However, it is impossible to predict the exact timings as it depends on the walking speed of the particular group we have on the day.

Please give yourself enough time to find the meeting point – it is quite a large station and has many entrances, please check the TFL journey planner for any planned engineering works and please allow enough time for any unplanned disruptions to your journey. If you are late and miss the group no refunds will be provided and there will be no use calling us and asking us to wait as I’m afraid I will not be keeping 30 people who made it on time, waiting for a late comer.

What’s included: train tickets, guided hike, admin fee.

Cancellations:

Please note that unless the trip is cancelled the payments are non-refundable as the costs need to be paid in advance. However you may be able to sell your place to your friends or other group members if you follow this procedure: http://katsadventures.com/#plx_progress_faq_section

DISCLAIMER and T&Cs:

By signing up to this event you confirm that you have read and consented to our terms and conditions (click to download) and waiver (click to download).

INSURANCE:

You also confirm that you will be responsible for your own insurance, so please make sure that it is at an appropriate level for this trip and the activities that you will be participating in. In addition to your own Personal Civil liability insurance, you will need an individual insurance for multi-risk and multi-activity holidays (expenses of cancellation, research – help, repatriation, medical expenses, theft of luggage, etc.) appropriate for the activities to be undertaken as part of the holiday. The general travel insurance is often minimal and rarely adapted to the active holidays. Please check the details with your insurance provider.

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about creating my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Many thanks
