Several North Londoners have requested this easy greenbelt walk for today, which manages a thoroughly rural feel despite being reachable by Underground. In places it could be a bit muddy (there are clay soils hereabouts) but it also includes a reasonable number of firm stony paths.

The Three Hammers, the lunchtime pub, is open today and does not require booking, though if any walkers are sure they are going to go today, a booking might not be a bad idea: coordinate this by posting comments below. If you pre-book, a special Boxing Day menu @ £19.99 is available, but the normal al la carte menu is also on offer too.

For tea, you will be delighted to hear that the Costa Coffee in the High Road will be open until 7pm. If you do the alternative ending through the village, the Orange Tree should also be open (leastways it is advertising lunch today)
