Part six of the Loop was quite heavy on suburban walking, and according to the guidebook - 'necessary at present because landowners have not been prepared to make a greener route available'. Highlights were Nonsuch Park, Bourne Hall Park, and following the River Hogsmill until we arrived in Kingston. Kingston was a very pleasant place, set on the banks of the mighty Thames.
