Roy Vickery will lead this walk studying the wildflowers that thrive in our churchyards, St Peter & St Paul’s is one of the largest in London so it should have some prolific plants growing there. The church is built on the site of a Saxon burial ground and there has been a church here since the 13th century. (Note: this is the church on Church Road, Mitcham, not the one of the same name on Cranmer Road!)
Roy is a renowned botanist specialising in plant-lore and also president of the SLBI, as well as the author of Vickery’s Folk Flora.
