Clock icon
11:00 – 11:00 27 Aug 2011
Location icon
Greenford Station, Oldfield Lane, Greenford, Middlesex, UB6 8PX

This is a walk of about 6 miles mostly level and firm underfoot, but with two fairly steep hills rewarded by fine views.
Meet 11:00 Greenford station, Central Line, also mainline trains.
From Greenford station we soon cross Paradise Fields Wetlands, (once a golf course!) then follow the canal towpath to a bridge which we cross. Soon we reach Horsenden Hill (optional side trip to Visitor Centre toilets), and ascend (slog) for extensive views.
Descending through woodland there follows some suburbia pavement through Sudbury Hill (possible refreshment stop). Then a slow ascent via Piggy Lane to Harrow-on-the-Hill with views of the famous school (REMS members are advised not to wear straw boaters to avoid a whacking).
Lunch stop: Either Sudbury or Harrow-on-the-Hill.
Finally a descent by and across playing fields brings us to South Kenton station, the end of our walk.
Return travel from South Kenton station, Bakerloo Line or mainline trains. Buses may offer other options. Please check times via tfl website. Drop out points and toilets will be advised on the day.
Please Book with REMS
