Doctor's Office
“Barnes was listed in the Domesday Book of 1086 under its Saxon name Berne (meaning barn). The 2.3 mile Barnes Trail, and the 3 mile Extension, have been designed to show Barnes at its best. The route is circular, so it doesn't matter where you start – just follow the silver 'Barnes Trail' discs set in the ground. If you walk quickly, you can complete the Trail in under an hour. The oar signs en route tell you what to look for. Four 'introductory' oars guide visitors at the main public transport locations – the north- and south-bound Red Lion bus stops on Castelnau/Rocks Lane, and Barnes and Barnes Bridge railway stations. The oars feature QR codes for scanning with a QR-code app ”
