Our group gathered in the centre of Pinner and set off at a leisurely pace through Pinner Memorial Gardens. The weather was overcast but with a warm southerly wind. It was the first time that the group had met since lockdown began nearly 3 months ago.

There were only five of us in the party, Lawrence, Charlie, Graham, Richard (with D’Arcy) and Ian, but that was certainly enough to keep the conversation flowing. Generally we managed to keep socially distant and stile able to communicate as we walked along.

It is a fairly slow climb to Haste Hill, but entering the open space where we did provides a great view across London. On a clearer day I am sure we could have seen more. Wembley Stadium was evident and one of the group claimed to able to see Crystal Palace.

From here we dropped down in to Ruislip Woods. This is such a beautiful resource that is so close to Pinner. It appears relatively empty but this is probably because it is such a large area. It becomes busier when you arrive at the path that skirts Ruislip Lido. We stopped to look at the barriers preventing entrance to the water and quickly moved on.

On the route back we were met by a woman who’s husband had lost their dog. She was naturally distraught, unfortunately we didn’t see her brown elderly pointer during the rest of our walk through the woods. A straight forward route back took us out of the woods and onto the Celandine Way and returning into Pinner.

A very enjoyable 2 hour walk from Pinner Centre.
