On Sunday 12 January 2020 our friends the Railway engineers excelled themselves in making travel arrangements for the Sunday Ramble more complex than had been planned when the programme was printed. Due to the engineering works it was not practical to begin the walk from Hampton Court but the leader Antoinette Adkins devoted herself to working out an alternative plan and the actual arrangements appeared as a late amendment on the website as follows:
