Geo-Trips :: North London, east-west along the Alexandra Palace ridge from Wood Green

North London, east-west along the Alexandra Palace ridge

A walk from Wood Green, Thu, 9 Feb 2017 by Christopher Hilton

One of a series of walks I took across suburbia whilst working in central London. Each walk took about an hour from start to finish and could thus be carried out in an extended lunch-break, leaving the office at 12 and getting back to my desk by 2. Thank you, Geograph: you got me out doing something worthwhile in a lunch-break rather than simply going to the supermarket.
