Pub Strolls in Middlesex & West London

Pub Strolls in Middlesex & West London

by: David Hall and Rosemary Hall
The thirty circular walks in this all-colour guide combine some of the most rural and picturesque scenery in the area with the opportunity to enjoy a meal and a drink in a good local pub. The routes vary in length between 1.5 and 5 miles and there is information about how to get to the start by road and by public transport, where to park, and places of interest to visit nearby. In addition, there are photographs of the pubs and sights along the way, and sketch maps with numbering to match the text.
The area offers many different landscapes to explore. These include the lakes, rivers and reservoirs around Staines; the 14,000 native British trees planted since 1993 by Hillingdon Council in Stockley Country Park; the Chelsea Physic Garden, founded in 1673 to grow medicinal plants; Hounslow Heath, once a training ground for Cromwell's army; and Harrow-on-the-Hill with its school and spectacular views. There are also opportunities to visit Harmondsworth Moor with its abundance of wildlife, meadows and wildflowers, all thriving despite the proximity of Heathrow Airport and the M25; Bentley Priory from where the RAF ran much of the Battle of Britain; William Hogarth's house in Chiswick; Kensall Green cemetery with its magnificent gravestones; and Monken Hadley Common, at one time part of the royal hunting forest of Enfield Chase.
