VISIT a TIMEWARP this afternoon as we retrace the route of one of London's great lost journeys.
Forgotten Railways, Overgrown Platforms and Phantom Stations are the theme for today's unusual and slightly longer than usual 6 mile Stroll.
Starting at the Finsbury Park we walk through mostly parkland as we trace the route of a railway that once ran to Alexandra Palace via Highgate. http://underground-history.co.uk/northernh.php
The route may be a little muddy in places as we stroll along what has now in places become London's longest Local Nature Reserve which supports a remarkable range of habitats and wildlife. Over two hundred species of wild flower have been recorded and it is probably the only place in Haringey where orchids rub shoulders with dandelions and ivy clambers up fig trees.
Hedgehogs, foxes, butterflies and a vast array of birds are spotted on a daily basis and even a rare species of deer, the muntjac, is spotted from time to time.
Enjoy London! So get out and see your City in the company of friends! Walking is one of life's inexpensive and healthy social activities. Join us for a leisurely freestyle fascinating afternoon stroll.
Meeting at FINSBURY PARK station (Zone 2) (Station Place side near National Rail entrance and bus stop G).
Finishing at Wood Green station (Zone 3)
