Long-Distance Walks with Mark Moxon

Capital Ring: Day 2: Falconwood to Grove Park

Eltham Palace

This might be the second shortest day on the Ring – the last day is a tiny bit shorter – but it's small and perfectly formed. Suburbia rubs shoulders with mediaeval buildings, while urban farms boast great city views, and the only problem with the whole day is that it's over before it really gets started. If you're in the mood for a longer walk, I highly recommend extending this day into parts of day 1 or day 3, especially if you're coming a long way to reach the Ring in the first place.
