London:Naturally - Photograph around Horsenden Hill

Event info

RPS have postponed all meetings, at least until the end of April, in line with Government advice relating to the COVID-19 pandemic

This month London Naturally will explore and photograph the Horsenden Hill conservation site which comprises a mix of meadows, wetland and woodland habitat as well as the highest point in the London Borough of Ealing. We will be walking approximately three miles.

The walk follows part of Section 9 of the Capital Ring. From the meeting point at Greenford Station we head to Paradise Fields Wetlands with its scrapes, reed beds and lagoons. From here we head along a short stretch the Grand Union Canal before a steep climb up Horsenden Hill, the highest point in the London Borough of Ealing with views over six counties and ten London Boroughs. We descend the hill through Horsenden's ancient wood. Once we leave the wood we have a 0.5 mile road walk to Sudbury Town Station where the walk will finish.

Much of the walk will be on unsurfaced paths which may be muddy so please wear appropriate footwear. Also bring a drink to keep you hydrated. Unfortunately there is nowhere convenient for refreshments/lunch at the end of the walk so you may also want to consider bringing a snack.
