8 on time, 1 other delayed, 1 other more delayed (both due to an earlier Jubilee Line suspension), i.e. n=10 in w=warm-and-sticky weather.
Nice walking along the River Brent/Grand Union Canal (they are the same waterbody on this stretch) and across a lock, then there is a 3 minute stretch of rather claustrophobic path parallel to an indistrial single track railway line and a bit of M4 noise, and then some actually quite interesting semi-wilderness. The pub (Fuller's) is quite good, about half of people ordered a meal, eaten outside under the Heathrow flight path. 4 moved on after a drink to beat the darkness, the rest kind of achieved that as well.
Oh, we saw a large herd of albino cows...
