Richmond Park Walks with Remarkable Trees: Set 1


This  item  Click & Collect  only

4 illustrated walk booklets, plus an introductory leaflet and a Tread Lightly leaflet, attractively packaged.  Discover the diversity and majestic beauty of some of the Park’s most interesting trees through these four self-guided walks. This is the first set of this popular Friends’ series, with walks starting from these car parks: Pembroke Lodge (the Visitor Centre), Sheen Gate and Roehampton Gate.

All the walks are circular routes starting from a car park and are between 2.2 and 5.3km long. Each walk is in its own easy-to-use 12 page booklet, and the 2 sets of 4 walks are on sale for £5 per set.

Trees are one of the glories of the Park and one of the main reasons why it is a designated National Nature Reserve. The purpose of these walks is to allow you to find out more about the trees and also to have a good walk in areas you may not otherwise get to see. Each walk features a detailed route map and is set out in stages with clear directions to the next stage and information about the trees you will see along the way, as well as many high-class photos to help you identify them.

The walks are printed on FSC certified paper and the set, which also includes an introductory leaflet and a Tread Lightly leaflet, comes in a sturdy string and washer envelope – this will keep them safe and enables us to sell them without a plastic cover.
