WALK- Thames Path/Brent River/Grand Union Canal, Barnes to Boston Manor.17:11:18
Enjoy London! Get out and see your City in the company of great friends! Join us for a Sunday afternoon stroll (followed by socialising in the pub). Walking is one of life's great social activities. Route:We start at Barnes and head out to Boston Manor via Barnes Bridge, Thames Path, Brent River and Grand Union Canal. Walking is one of life's great social activities. This SATURDAY AFTERNOON WALK is approx. 6.5 miles starting from Barnes Station and we finish close by Boston Manor Tube Station on the Piccadilly Line. About Boston Manor Park: The park was created in 1924 from part of the historic estate of the 17th-century stately home Boston Manor. The Boston Manor estate is thought to date back to at least 1163 and had a series of influential owners. At one time, it was part of the estate of royal financier Thomas Gresham who also owned neighbouring Osterley Park. The house that survives in the centre of the park dates from 1623. Just under a century later, the grounds were described as comprising of 3 acres and in 1670, the estate was sold to the Clitherow family, and it remained in their ownership for the next 250 years. In the late 18th century, some land was sold to enable construction of the Grand Union Canal. By the late 19th century, this part of London had become urbanised and increasingly shabby, but the estate remained a rural island – containing fine views, historic trees, roses and kitchen garden. Plan your journey, with TFL's Journey Planner (http://journeyplanner.tfl.gov.uk/) The nearest train station at the start of the walk is Barnes Station (not to be confused with Barnes Bridge Station.
