5 May 2013: Cockfosters and Trent Park

Sixteen of us met at Cockfosters underground station for a walk led by Jean [and unbeknown to us another member came a few minutes later and missed us]. We entered Trent Park and were immediately tempted with a quick coffee break at the café. We soon saw people zooming above on an exciting zip-wire experience then to another century and a medieval pond which was part of an old moat.

We had our lunch by a monument to a member of the Aristocracy who died in infancy in 1702 then walked along a lake and back to the café for more coffee [and cakes for some of us]. It was an easy 4 mile walk but some of our more intrepid members decided to do an extra mile and go to Oakwood station.
