Evening Walk - Trent Park

Trent Country Park & Enfield Chase
Distance: 8km

Meet 19:00 prompt at the entrance to Cockfosters underground station. An evening walk to make the most of the long daylight evening. The walk is on the outskirts of London through Trent Country Park & Enfield Chase and is worth the journey to the end of the Piccadilly line. Finish up at the Cock & Dragon for drink / meal. T=short.10

I'm probably going - will try to catch you up if I don't make it to Cockfosters in time

Did anyone go on this? I got to Cockfosters a bit late as expected, followed the first half of the walk more or less as described but didn't see anyone. I took a couple of shortcuts on the way back but away from the mapped route, the paths are pretty sketchy. It was w=dry-and-sunny,-if-anything-a-bit-muggy.

N - 3

W - near perfect.

Odd absence of walkers on this, given that the route begins beside the station, and the fine weather. All that we needed were deer. Perhaps the walk setter could book some for the next posting?

Sorry to miss you, Sandy. We went astray early on. Yes, the paths are pretty sketchy. The lovely Trent Park itself (the former Sassoon mansion turned university) was cordoned off. Some to become flats, apparently. Good, reasonably priced food in the pub at the end.
