Walk from Thornton Heath to Streatham via parks, followed by Ice Hockey match

Sunday 7th January @ 11:00 am to 9:00 pm

The usual route from Crystal Palace Station been changed to include Croydon’s “lesser known” parks, some of which were mentioned by Nicola Hunt in her very interesting “100 spaces in 100 days” COPSE talk in October.

These are the afternoon’s details, which  you can join at any time

Part 1

12 noon: meet at Thornton Heath station (either by train, 468 bus or 50 bus from Croydon)

A four mile “easy” walk to Streatham High Road via Norbury Hall (or squirrel 🐿) Park, Norbury Park, Norwood Grove, Streatham Common + the Rookery gardens which has toilets + a cafe

Part 2

About 3.30pm to 6pm: “The Bull” pub (Young’s) on Streatham High Road for either a meal or drinks, where I might need to book a table inside but there is a large covered garden outside with wall heaters.

I’ve now booked a long table on Sunday afternoon for ten people in the main bar from 3pm onwards on a “first come, first served basis”.

Part 3

6.45pm start: Streatham Redhawks v Oxford City Stars ice hockey match  🏒  🥅   ⛸ where you might need to book advance tickets to avoid queuing = £13.50 (adults) or £8.50 (over 60s + concessions)

If you have any questions, please let me know.
