    By my reckoning there hasn't been a Winterval walk for at least five years. Is anyone upferit this year?

    Note I am breaking with a broken tradition and suggesting we walk together on NYE rather than the 1st.

    Train leaves Victoria at 11.10 and stops at Clapham Junction and Balham on the way to Box Hill arriving just after noon. Circular route takes about 2 hours so even with a hostelry we'll be safely back in zone 2 by dark.

    Cheers for the thought, but I’m in Wales and then Cotswolds until the new year.

    Bump.
    Plan is to be on the 11.10 out of Victoria, 11.24 from Balham, arriving at Box Hill and Westhumble at 12.06. Route info is in the OP.
    I think we have around 6 strollers. Meet in the first train carriage. Please let me know if you are coming so I can be in touch on the day if need be.

    Sounds lovely, but am working that day. :/
    Please keep keeping me in the loop about walks in the new year; they are definitely on my list of new year's resolution type musings. Not being on enough walks with other people has been one of the lows for me this year and last year.
    Have a great day!

    Walking the capital ring with the new baby tomorrow (Hackney Wick section). Continue to do hardcore London-based walks (up to 15 miles) with a new born baby almost every week with an open invitation to anybody to attend.

    Happy to support the walking project on Urban but not sure yet on this one so voting Bibble.

    I'd like to come along but I have one more job to finish before tomorrow night. Unfortunately, I'm reliant on my client to getting some documents to me before I can complete it. :(

    If I get it sorted, I'll meet you all at Box Hill & Westhumble station.

    mango5 , assuming you still have the same mobile number, I'll text you to confirm before you get to the start of the walk.

    Sounds like we should bring sandwich to eat on move for lunch? (I can't function without something approximating lunch between about midday and half one)

    Good plans both. I'm still on the same number. Those who don't have a clockwork stomach would probably do well to have a good breakfast or bring food as I haven't investigated refreshment options.

    I've only just finished with my client so realistically I'm not going to be able to get my arse into gear to make it for the start of the walk. :(

    Hope you all have a good walk!
