Episode 11 – Historical Watercourses Walk

We’ve got a slight change from the advertised program this Sunday at 8pm on Wandsworth Radio. The Mark Silcox episode has been postponed – it will be happening, we’ve done the walk and comedian Mark Silcox will be on the show at some point soon.

We’ve juggled things around a bit and come up with a brilliant Walking Wandsworth, that I guarantee is going to be extremely informative because we’ve got two extremely knowledgeable guests walking us through it. John Rattray of the Balham Society and Andrew Flegg from the Tooting Common Heritage Project.

The walk took place on Thursday in Tooting Common. It was a very special Historical Watercourses Walk to celebrate the restoration of the Drinking Fountain near Dr Johnson Avenue. This is the route we took.

John and Andy came into the Wandsworth Radio studios and recreated the walk by telling us about how water is managed on the common.

  2. I wish he would post the link to the radio show or what not. It really helps to get the point across. In particular, overseas.

  3. it always inspire me to join such campaign for a good cause. you get to tell history and let people aware of how to take care of the water.

  4. That was really a great walk there and for an amazing cause too.It was nice of John and Andy to come by to help recreate the walk on how to managed water.

  5. The route you took looks like the map of a state here in the USA. I sure hope the history in the walk was classical.

  6. This is good and all but I honestly won’t survive that long long trail… Though It’s a really good cause as “water is life”..

  7. This got me curious, I would have loved to see the restoration of the Drinking Fountain, too! I hope to hear one of your radio episodes soon, please post the link, thanks!

  8. Looking at your route, that’s pretty long, isn’t it? How many kilometers/miles is that? Glad that you we’re able to have both a historical and healthy walk.

  9. The route looks interesting, I love lakes and it would be very nice to see some pictures. Good that you were walking for a good cause

  10. I hope I would be able to listening in on the talk with John and Andy in Wandsworth radio, especially on the aspect of managing water..
