Description: Grand Surrey Canal Part 2.
Returning through Fordham Park to Folkestone Gardens, where we left the route of the canal at the end of Part 1, we continue to follow the route of the canal through streets and through Burgess Park to the terminus of the canal at Camberwell, then along the Surrey Canal Walk which follows the route of the Peckham branch of the canal to end at Peckham Rye station. This is a leisurely walk with frequent stops to explain the route of the canal etc. The lunch stop is roughly halfway.
