Capital Ring - Hendon to Highgate

Hendon to Highgate, London. Sat 20 Apr 2019



 Holocaust Memorial Garden in Hendon Park

 

 Shirehall Lane Mikvah

 Shirehall Lane. A woman stopped us on the street and asked why she saw so many walkers and we told her about

 the Capital Ring. She told us it was Passover, and this was why we were seeing so many small groups of Jewish men walking.

 Both sides of the River Brent here were part of the gardens of the Brent Bridge Hotel, demolished in 1974

 but these two small pavillions were left.

 Brook Lodge, next to the Brent

 

 The River Brent

 and a lake in Brent Park. Some of the ponds here were dug to attract ducks so they could be shot to eat and are called 'The Decoy'

 Houses tower above the river

 The Mutton Brook meets the Dollis Brook here to form the RIver Brent

 The river junction

 We walked a bit further north alongside the Dollis Brook here

 where it rather meanders

 This isn't part of the Capital Ring but is part of the Dollis Valley Greenwalk and was perhaps the prettiest bit

 or our walk.

 We turned back at the North Circular

 

 

 and rejoined the Capital Ring to walk beside the Mutton Brook

 

 and into Hampstead Garden Village. Begun as a garden village to house a community of all classes in 1906

 it was soon taken over by the rich

 Mutton Brook

Northway Gardens
