Geo-Trips :: A circuit round Harrow-on-the-Hill from Northwick Park station

A circuit round Harrow-on-the-Hill

A walk from Northwick Park station, Tue, 20 Jan 2015 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.
