PHRA walkers on Nonsuch Park

     PHRA Ramblers Walk 13th May 2018

                        We will meet at the entrance of the Nonsuch Park car park

                    Ewell Road, Cheam entrance at 2.00 p.m.

NOTE NEW TIME

 

Summary:- We will view the assumed site of Millais' painting of 'Orphelia', the spring renowned for Epsom Salts, which happens to be the source of the River Hogsmill, St Mary's Church New and old, The Banqueting House, the site of Nonsuch Palace and back to the Mansion House for Tea and Cake.

Car Park access is right at the sharp bend to the left on Ewell Road where the memorial is situated.

The walk commences with continuing along the entrance road, officially The Avenue, but known by local children, for obvious reasons, as Conker alley. Shortly after passing the wooded area on our right, we will veer right along  a track heading towards Dianas Dyke and the London Road South car park and exit. Turning left onto the A24 we continue along London Road to cross the A240, Ewell Bypass, down into Ewell. At Mill Road on our right we take this short road to cross the old Kingston Road to the Mill and view the River Hogsmill. We return back to the London Road to the Spring Hotel crossing over at the traffic lights to enter St Mary's churchyard. Following the path onto Church Street, turn left and follow Vicarage lane footpath, which is accessed at the bend of Church Street. At the end of Vicarage Lane cross the Ewell Bypass and access the footpath to the left of the raised area. Go up the steps sited on the right, to the site of the Banqueting House. At the right hand side of the back of the B.H. take the path straight ahead which will lead back to Avenue Road in Nonsuch Park. View the site of Nonsuch Palace and then head back to the Mansion House visible in the distance for well earned refreshments.

PHRA Summer Saturday - a family event - Saturday July 15th - St Philip's Church Hall, 2 - 6

We are holding our summer event indoors this year - we have been rained off twice!

What do you eat at home for lunch or tea?

Can you prepare a dish and bring it along to share?  We are looking forward to sampling the rich ranger of cuisines found in our neighbourhood.  Sweet and savoury items all welcome.

We are planning the details of the event right now and pooling ideas.  As well as food and drink, we are hoping to include entertainments of various kinds,  stalls where you can demonstrate and display your crafts, a book exchange.  Any suggestions?

Do you know an entertainer or musician who is starting to make their way?  We can provide them with a venue or audience - we are looking for the talent of Pollards Hill - old and young!

PLEASE = put the date in your diary and invite the grandchildren.  Satursday afternoon - July 15th
