We improvised the route through the ancient wood a little compared to the writeup, and got to the lido when there were still plenty of people swimming or generally mucking about on the beach. Hillingdon Council seem to have invested a fair amount of money in recent years in up to date facilities incl. a cafe, toilets etc.
Off to the Water's Edge pub, where - disappointingly - the cooler had broken down and no draught beer was served, and the kitchen had closed as well.
Back to Ruislip Manor by bus and a farewell drink at the Wetherspoon's...
There are several other woods around the northern edge of the pond, so this may make a good daytime suburban winter walk.
