Walk Report

Boston Manor to Hammersmith, Thursday 20th August 2015
10 walkers, 7 miles - leader Rob Myers
On a gloomy late August night 10 of us gathered at Boston Manor. The walk was notable for having 3 current and ex-LDWA National Chairs on it. We briefly explored Boston Manor Park including its Jacobean Manor House. The park is unusual in that its nature trail passes under a M4 flyover. The walk followed the Grand Union Canal to Brentford and then went along the Thames Path to reach Chiswick House Gardens. The highlight of the walk was an extensive tour of the gardens which is one of London's lesser known gems. After leaving the gardens we had a walk along another section of the Thames Path to reach the Plough and Harrow pub in Hammersmith where most people stayed for the traditional Thursday night Wetherspoons curry.
