The Pymmes Brook Trail

My latest ‘walks’ article for Londonist took me along the little-known Pymmes Brook Trail, a ten-mile trek across North London that begins in the almost-rural surroundings of Cockfosters, cuts through the suburban parks of East Barnet and Palmers Green, crosses the North Circ and winds its way through urban Edmonton before ending amid light industry and narrowboats at Pickett’s Lock on the Lee Navigation. The contrasting nature of these locales is perhaps reflected in the fact that I managed to notch up 30 (yes, thirty) different bird species sighted on the course of the walk – among them two types of wagtail, a blackcap, a chiffchaff and a little egret. The write-up can be seen here:
