On Tuesday 14th February we will meet at 10.00am at the car park in Kensington Avenue, Northolt. We are visiting Northala Fields, and climbing one of the man-made hills that you have probably noticed on the south side of the A40 Western Avenue, and always been curious about. Landscape Architect Peter Fink designed the park which was almost derelict, using spoil brought from the old Wembley Stadium. The hill that we will climb is the highest, and provides stupendous views over all of London, including Docklands, The City, and Harrow-on-the-Hill. There is a gently sloping spiral path that leads to the top, with a bench or two for a break if needed. There is a free car park café, a loo, and facilities for hiring a fishing rod! For your further enjoyment of the views bring some binoculars.
Directions: The post code is UB5 6AH. From the A40 eastbound – take the exit at Target Roundabout, as if rejoining the A40 eastbound, and follow the slip road, but keep to the LEFT. Follow the slip road to Ealing Road, and turn right at the end of the road. Pass under the A40 and continue along Kensington Avenue, the car park is 150 yards along on the right hand side, and is free. The site is half a mile from Northolt Tube station on the central line.
