A stroll along the Grand Union Canal to Hanwell Locks with London Naturally

This month the London Naturally Photo Group will take a Sunday morning stroll along the Grand Union Canal from Osterley Lock to the Hanwell Flight of locks. We meet at Boston Manor Station and take a short walk to join the canal just before Osterley Lock. Despite the proximity of the M4 motorway, there's a very rural feel to this section of the canal. We are likely to encounter moorhens, ducks and swans along the way and will pass several picturesque canalside cottages. We will then reach the Hanwell Flight – a series of seven locks built to enable the canal to drop a distance of about 53 feet in around a third of a mile. We will end the walk at Brunel's Three Bridges, a masterpiece of engineering enabling the road to cross the canal which crosses the railway. From here we will catch a bus back to Boston Manor Station. At the end of the walk there is the option of a pub lunch (at your own expense). Most of the walk will be on surfaced or gravel paths, including a few steps, but is uneven in places so please make sure you wear appropriate footwear. Also please remember to bring a drink to keep you hydrated.

Revisit Woodberry Wetlands with London Naturally Photo Group

Manor House Station

We will meet at Manor House Station at 10:30am and take a short walk along the New River to the entrance to the reservoirs. We will then explore this compact oasis aiming to complete the walk about by 13:00 followed by optional lunch (at your own cost) at the Coal House Café on site with free time to explore the remainder of the site after the walk. The Woodberry Wetlands is an operating reservoir originally constructed in 1833 and closed to public access ever since. Working closely with Thames Water, London Wildlife Trust created an urban wetland oasis rich in wildlife. We will take a leisurely walk along paths around the reservoirs, stopping at various points. Birds we are likely to see include grey herons, geese (and goslings), grebes, many species of duck and smaller birds such as dunnock, tits and chaffinches. Kestrels, reed warblers and kingfishers have also been sighted. In addition to the birds, the site is home to invertebrates such as damselflies and dragonflies, as well as amphibians and plant life Most of the walk will be on surfaced or gravel paths, including a few steps, but is uneven in places so please make sure you wear appropriate footwear. Also please remember to bring a drink to keep you hydrated.
