Travelcard Walks in West London by Margaret Sharp
The author of this guide has been exploring and rambling in West London for 20 years; here, she shares her extensive knowledge of the wealth of rural-type landscapes still situated within London's sprawling surbubia. Starting from the centre, these 25 walks take the reader further and further out, to places like Crane River Park, Barn Hill, Harmondsworth Moor and Yeading Brook Meadows, unknown to most Londoners yet always beginning and ending within the boundaries of the London Travelcard. Particularly aimed at newcomers to walking, the basic routes covered here are short, mostly 3-5 miles. Further suggestions are made for the more energetic, and each walk has full route directions, public transport details and a sketch map. Notes on historic sites and buildings are also provided to add interest for the tourist.
