Time for me to continue my Capital Ring Walk.
An fast and easy journey back to Harrow, though using the tube is never my favourite. It was a bad plan to break the ring at Harrow though, as the walk goes over the top of the hill, with the station at the bottom. So the first task was to climb back up the hill:
This is the end of Section 9.
The path climbs up and winds around Barn Hill:
“There is a white painted ‘trig’ point, originally used in mapping the land. There was an 18th century folly here but now there is only a seat giving views of Wembley Stadium and, on a good day, St. Paul’s Cathedral and the Telecom Tower. Barn Hill, rising to 282 feet (86 metres) above sea level, was landscaped as part of the Wembley Park estate in 1793
by the famous landscape gardener Humphry Repton and is one of the best surviving examples of his early work. The Lombardy Poplar Avenue, which gives Barn Hill its
distinctive skyline, was planted in about 1935, possibly to commemorate the Silver Jubilee of King George V. You can just see the ring of Wembley Stadium in the background.”
This has Thameslink services, so I was able to avoid the tube on the return journey.
7.8 miles of Capital Ring walking today and NO Geocaches found (unusually, there were none placed on this part of the Capital Ring).
