The Tamsin Trail, near Ham Gate, Richmond Park
The trail, which runs right round the Park fairly close to its boundary, was laid out in the 1980's. At that time mountain bikes were a recent development, and the Park authorities devised the trail in an attempt to contain their activity (or so I was told at the time, by a senior member of the Park staff).

As things turned out, the trail - with its gravelled surface - proved popular with walkers, especially those pushing buggies (and the like). Conflict was inevitable, and not everybody would agree that the trail was a good idea - running, as it does, through what were once some of the least disturbed parts of the Park.

The view here is north, from near Ham Gate Pond, looking towards Pembroke Lodge and Richmond Gate.

Richmond Park is a National Nature Reserve.
