Fencepiece Rd, Barkingside, IG6 2JP
How about a Christmas pub and nature crawl lol?
I thought we'd start off at The Fairlop Oak in Barkingside for a coffee (PLEASE NOTE THIS IS NOT WHERE WE ARE HAVING LUNCH), then go for a walk through Claybury Forest to the Nature Conservation Project at Redbridge Lakes http://redbridgelakes.co.uk/
Lunch at the Toby Carvery down the road at Woodford Avenue will be next. Then a walk back to The Fairlop Oak for a couple of Christmas bevvies for those who want to hang around for a while.
Let's meet at The New Fairlop Oak pub for coffee at 10.30am, and we'll leave for the forest at 11am. We'll be near the back of the pub, by the door to the car park.
Fairlop tube station is five minutes walk. Turn right onto the main road from the station and the pub is on the roundabout a few minutes away.
These buses go to the door: 150, 167, 169, 247, 275, 462. The 128 stops five minutes walk away.
There are a fair few roads a couple of minutes walk from the pub that have no yellow lines, or there is a large car park on the opposite side of the roundabout, facing the pub.
