A trip to Highgate on 14th June was attended by 22 people, who travelled there by train and tube to Archway Underground station and then a short walk uphill, through pretty Waterlow Park to the Cemetery. The weather was glorious but not too hot for walking, especially in the shade of the graveyard.
Our Explore London 2 group enjoyed the walk from Hammersmith to Barnes on 16th May.
