Village Walks in Middlesex & West London

Village Walks in Middlesex & West London

by: David Hall and Rosemary Hall
London is a collection of villages. This is as true today as it was a hundred years ago and more. Within those in the Middlesex and West London area, or close by, lies a rich heritage of Georgian houses, timber-framed buildings, Victorian terraces, village greens, parish churches, open spaces, canals, rivers and footpaths. And one of the best ways to explore this varied landscape is on foot.

The twenty routes in this book also introduce the walker to a country park near Harefield, nature reserves near Arkley and Totteridge, and a nature trail near Enfield. The villages have been carefully chosen for their interesting features and proximity to large parks and open countryside. Among the most picturesque are Shepperton, Sunbury, Harrow and Mill Hill.

Each walk instruction also includes details on how to get to the start by public transport and by car, where to park and what food and drink are available locally. The walks vary in length from 1.75 to 7 miles. For greater clarity, the route descriptions are divided into numbered paragraphs which correspond with the numbers on the accompanying sketch maps. In addition, there is a separate section about places of interest to visit nearby such as Osterley House designed by Robert Adam; the small zoo in Brent Lodge Park; Headstone Manor, a 14th-century moated manor house in the grounds of Harrow Museum and Heritage Centre; and the Royal Air Force Museum at Hendon.
