Grand Union Canal to Osterley Park (Middlesex) – 03/06/07 – 5 miles approx
A small walk along the Grand Union Canal, which I then linked into Osterley Park. On the canal I was able to point out to Helen, the coal delivery entrance to St. Bernards hospital, and Brunel’s Windmill bridge, which was designed to accommodate both road and rail, as well as canal traffic (having of course nicked all this information off someone elses website a few days earlier). Having promised Helen a 10 mile walk, I felt somewhat crushed when she pointed out to me that it was nearer 5. However I soon got over that after a scrumptious lunch at the National Trust restaurant.
