What 3 Words Map Code: focus.young.moving


Note the memorial plaque which was moved from a former memorial bench on this site.

The next bears in the trail are at the Walden and the Chislehurst Recreation Grounds.

Returning over the footbridge, leave Elmstead Woods station.  At the end of the station road turn left up Elmstead Lane.  Continue over the roundabout using the dedicated pedestrian pathway past the sports ground and entrance to Elmstead Wood.

Cross over Elmstead Lane towards the Elmstead Care Home Bupa. Turn right immediately after the Care Home up Elmstead Heights Close towards a footpath, known locally as The Cow Path.

Continue the full length of the footpath until you arrive in Walden Recreation Grounds. Click “Next Bear” below to see more about the Welcome to Walden Rec bear!
