The walk will start at Hendon Central Northern Line station and proceed via Hendon (Thameslink) station, offering a choice of convenient starting points. The route then follows the Welsh Harp Reservoir (renowned nature reserve and yachting centre), through to Fryent Country Park, a mix of water, woodland and fields. Scenic views of Wembley en route to lunch in Preston Hill. The pre-lunch walk is 3 miles. After lunch we take a two-stop tube journey to Harrow on the Hill, encompassing Harrow School and St Mary’s Church. This offers Lord Byron’s favourite view, and a bizarre tombstone inscription.
