Walk Report

In the Steps of Mr Pooter, Tuesday 1st June 2010
6 walkers, 7 miles - leader Peter Russell
From drizzle at Archway to drizzle at Golders Green a group of six and Holly had a lovely walk whilst others sunbathed in Scotland. We went through rhododendrons and azaleas in Waterlow Park and Kenwood. We then kept to the woods. We also found the Hampstead Heath hockey field with which has a bad slope, as pointed out by Chris Dent fresh from the 100. We saw the two 300-year-old oaks complete with their photographs of 120 years ago when Sandy Heath was a desolate sand mine which caused it's many little hillocks, of which the largest was bit like a scree run and avoided by most. We finished with high class food and drink at the Old Bull and Bush, renamed the Cow and Hedge in Diary of a Nobody, although the old pleasure garden with wooden arbours is now built over.
