This is a walk of about 6 miles mainly level on firm paths and pavements, but with some climbs. Leaving South Kenton station we soon cross Preston Park, and then climb to Fryent Country Park to reach the summit of Barn Hill, and after crossing the A4140 Gotfords Hill with panoramic views.
Following residential roads through Kingsbury we pass two churches, both dedicated to St Andrew. Soon we reach the Welsh Harp Open Space, and the huge Brent Reservoir.
We follow its north shore and after some road walking we cross West Hendon Broadway, the M1, and Hendon Way to reach Hendon Park with a link to Hendon Central station, the end of our walk.
Our lunch stop will be either at the café in the Garden Centre at the west end of Brent reservoir, or a pub near its eastern end, depending on time and hunger.
We meet at South Kenton station which is on the Bakerloo Line and the Overground. Please aim to be ready to start by 10:45.
Drop out points and toilets will be advised on the day.
