Park
“This is a beautiful very natural park. It’s not too groomed like most London parks. The walk through to Wanstead high st and tube takes 20 minutes. Turn left out of the flat, takes first left after church into park road and the entrance to the park is at the end of the road. Continue along the path bearing left up to Wanstead, taking any left hand turn up the hill until you reach a lovely church beside the golf course car park when you turn right into the Avenue which leads to the high st. ”
