Eltham and Environs Walking Group had many walks and instructions but since they have redone their website from Joomla to WordPress almost all have been put behind a pay wall.
I took a copy from the
web archive and they are listed here. It’s possible some of the instructions are out of date, but as they are walked photos and walking maps will be added and put into the “ walks” category. Walks with the category “Walks to Do” have not been done yet.
The walks are all numbered with a letter following. “E” means easy, “M” medium and “L” is a mystery. Perhaps it means “long”.
These are divided into:
