17th March 2019 Harrow-on-Hill

The playing fields of Harrow school, historic buildings of Harrow
 Village, a cemetry and a wood.

 
This an excursion in Northwest London through a park and then the
playing fields of Harrow School, one of the country’s leading ‘public’,
i.e. fee-paying independent schools, up onto the hill that’s dominated by
the school buildings, its chapel and Harrow’s church. Down from the hill
through the hanging cemetery and skirt around the hill to
re-ascend through residential streets to the High Street, lined by historic
school buildings and tea options. The walk finished with a descent along a wood and across a grassy open space down to ‘modern’ Harrow
 and its busy station.
Lively conversation regarding  our view of tail-coated brash Harrovians
held in bright sunshine.
