A delightful autumn walk from Friary Park to Oak Hill Park.
Meet at the statue in Friary Park at 12-15pm for a 12-30pm start.
For our autumn walk we will head east and north towards Osidge. From Friary Park we will walk across Bethune Park for a lunch stop in New Southgate Recreation Ground. There are
no nearby eateries so a packed lunch is essential. After lunch we will head for a very picturesque stretch of Pymmes Brook that takes us through woodland and open space. After
a quick look at Brunswick Park we will follow Pymmes Brook along the garden village of East and West Walks for a finish at the café in Oak Hill Park. The café serves freshly prepared
food and a range of sandwiches and cakes. The pace will be leisurely and there will be dropout points along the way. After tea the 382 bus will take us back to Friern Barnet and
Finchley. We recommend that you bring a packed lunch and bottle of water with you.
Poets, Writers and performers are very welcome to join us to write a poem or piece of prose that will then be shared at the end of the walk with tea and of course that most important ingredient: cake!
Distance to lunch stop - 1.7 miles. Total distance to Finish - 3.9 miles
All welcome but £3 donation requested from non society members.
The Finchley Society normally show a slide show ahead of the walk but thought that late November was a bit late to see the autumn leaves at their best There is a pre-walk slide show at Trinity Church Centre on link here. . For full details see the
