A London view - 2
I have taken to the Parkland Walk, along the line of north London's lost railway, with the enthusiast of a convert. On a Sunday morning, I get up early and cycle. And on the northern stretch - on a bridge over St James's Lane in Muswell Hill - there is one of those views which hits you in the stomach. Looking east - with the Gherkin the most southerly spot in views, stretching to the bounds of London and beyond. You can get a sense of it here. Worth a glance!
If you head west into Alexandra Park, there's a another hidden gem - a cafe, the Grove, on a cycle path. On summer weekends, it opens at nine. I popped in this morning for a sausage sandwich breakfast to sustain me on the resy of my cycle ride, after which I cook a breakfast for the family. Sausages, of course.
I love the Parkland Walk and have often taken the W7 to Finsbury Park, just for the pleasure of walking all the way home, right up to Cufos (Community Use for Old Station) the former Alexandra Palace station. And we spent years waiting for that cafe on the Grove to open - right behind Muswell Hill primary school playground where the girls were at school for 4 years.
Hello. Is there a way to see all your posts about London in one click?
View from the London you have been explained here with us but for the only time you want to make with the super work there. I have today met with the girl who was from the London in the game then she told me more about the beauties.
