Capital Ring ‘Round-up’

So, I’ve completed the Capital Ring! I started it on a bit of a whim on a miserable February day last year; I liked walking but I was bored of my normal routes, so I wanted to try something new and living near the Ring, I’d seen the signs, so it finally piqued my interest….

Capital Ring – the final section (for me)

So, the final Capital Ring section for me, I had started, back in February 2016 on section 7 and today I finally did section 6, Wimbledon to Richmond. I had been looking forward to this one, as section 6 is home turf, well the Richmond Park bit of the section is anyway, despite living relatively…

Capital Ring – Section 5

So, section 5, Streatham to Wimbledon, my penultimate section (I started on section 7). This was not a particularly gripping section, hence only one photo. Most of the route was through suburban streets and most of the green spaces (the few that there were), were, well, suburban, although bits of Wandsworth Common, basically the bit…

Capital Ring section 4 – Crystal Palace to Streatham

I’ve nearly completed the Capital Ring (I started the Ring on section 7). I had planned to do both sections 4 and 5 today, as section 4 is quite short (6km) but my poor, operation scarred tummy was protesting, so I stuck at just the one. I think though, weather and time permitting, that I…

The rest of Capital Ring section 3

When I last hit the Capital Ring, I did section 2 and a bit of section 3, I hadn’t planned on doing any more until the Autumn but I’m not recovering too badly from my surgery, so I thought that I’d finish section 3 before the trains round my neck of the woods turned into…

Section 2 and a bit of the Capital Ring

Section 2 starts at Falconwood, it’s quite a short section, only 6km, so when I hit the end at Grove Park, I carried on and did a bit of section 3, up to the first turning in Beckenham Place Park, I then carried on and walked to Beckenham Hill station, although looking at it, if…

Completing Section 1 of the Capital Ring

I got to finish section 1 of the Capital Ring today or should I say, do the vast majority of it, due to getting horribly lost last time I attempted it. I had got so lost, I only, once back on track, managed to get as far as the gate to Maryon Park (which is not…

An attempt at section 1 of the Capital Ring

(For those new to my blog, I actually started the Capital Ring at section 7, you can read about how I got on, on my old blog here and more recent sections here) So, having mostly enjoyed section 15, last week, I was keen to get cracking on section 1 of the Capital Ring, so I…

Capital Ring – Stoke Newington to West Ham

I finally got round to doing the next part of the Capital Ring today (most of my Capital Ring posts are on my old blog or you can catch up with the Highgate to Stoke Newington section here). I actually did one and a half sections today, as section 13, Stoke Newington to Hackney Wick is…
