Beverley Brook Walk
This walk follows the Beverley Brook from the River Thames at Putney to New Malden. The trail passes through Barnes Common, Richmond Park and Wimbledon Common, exposing you to some of South London's most attractive countryside.
Walk highlights include the Beverley Meads and Fishpond Local Nature Reserve where Kingfishers and Mandarin Ducks may be seen. At Barnes you will pass near to the splendid Wildfowl and Wetlands Centre, where you can see a wide variety of wildlife including lapwings, little ringed plovers, great crested and little grebes, gadwall, mallards, pochards and tufted duck broods. There is also a section through the delightful Richmond Park where you can look out for the resident deer.
The walk is easily accessible from the train station at New Malden or from the nearby East Putney Tube or Putney train station.
