Oakwood Tube Station
Gill & Bob Gillworth
A walk in the Enfield area led by Gill and Bob.
Meet for a 10.30 start at the front entrance of Oakwood tube station (Piccadilly Line, designed by Charles Holden). There is cheap parking at the station at weekends and street parking can be found nearby.
In a recent land use survey, Enfield has been rated as the fourth greenest of all London Boroughs. and this walk reflects that. This walk will link the following Country Parks: Trent Park, Hilly Fields, Forty Hall and Whitewebbs, though a little bit of road walking is unavoidable. Lunch will be at Myddleton House Gardens, the former home of the noted plantsman E.A. Bowles and now the HQ of the Lea Valley Country Park. There is a cafe and a nice picnic area on site. There will be an opportunity to explore the gardens before we move on. (The Pied Bull pub is also nearby but if anyone would like to go for that option, please contact us first as booking may be required). Return will be via our place for a cup of tea and we will then take the drivers back up to Oakwood to collect the cars.
