Seven of us met at Finsbury Park for a walk along the Parkland Walk to Highgate, stopping along the way to admire the Marilyn Collins sculpture which is all too easy to miss unless you know it’s there. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parkland_Walk
We continued through Queens Wood where we stopped at the cafe for coffee then did a circuit of Highgate Wood followed by a walk into the top of Highgate to wind our way along Fitzroy Park into the Caen Wood area of Hampstead Heath then we stopped for a lunch break at Kenwood House which has had a wonderful makeover in the last two years and is well worth a visit.
After lunch we continued on through the top of the heath crossing into West Heath and walking along the beautiful pergola which once belonged to Inverforth House which has been converted into very expensive apartments. Our walk continued through Hill Garden and into Golders Hill Park then up the road to Golders Green where we caught the bus back to Finsbury Park.
