Sunday 17th November – Walk the Battlefields of Brentford and Turnham Green 1642

Join Simon Marsh and Stephen Porter are leading walks across the battlefields of Brentford and Turnham Green. These battles marked the end of the opening campaign of the war and were as close as the royalists would get to taking London throughout the Civil Wars. For Brentford meet at the Market Square Brentford (TW8 8AH) at 10:30am For Turnham Green meet at Chiswick Park underground station (W4 5NE) at 2pm. There is a voluntary £5 charge if you not a member of the Battlefields Trust – but this good value for money.  Warning lots of urban walking but no hills.
