Last weekend saw 41 different Winter Warmers walks around London, organised by Walk London and TFL. I went on the High Barnet to Cockfosters walk, with around 100 other people. Our guide mentioned that it was the biggest group he’d ever been out with!
A meandering route from High Barnet tube took us through King George’s Field, into Hadley Common and Monken Hadley, and on through Hadley Wood until we reached Cockfosters.
The walk forms a small part of one section of the London Loop – a walk I really will do at some point.
Our guide told us lots of the history of the area – and pointed out many of the more spectacular houses there are around here. I knew that the area around Hadley Wood railway station was very popular with footballers, but Monken Hadley isn’t exactly cheap itself.
