Well what a lovely, sunny and warm bank holiday we’ve had! Shame we’ve spent most of it indoors – I’ve been working on my skirt and Dave’s hurt his foot, but my sisters and brothers-in-law came to visit and we did manage a lovely walk around Trent Park. The place is *huge*, you really feel you are right in the middle of the countryside, despite being accessible from two Tube stations. It’s gorgeous too. There are lots of meadows, woodland, water and plenty of places to have some space to yourself. And it’s only a five-minute drive from me too. Bonus.
There’s also a wild animal rescue centre, a Go Ape, an ancient moat and Middlesex University used to have a campus here. There really is an awful lot to see! I really want to take Betsy to the Animal Centre, but we keep getting distracted by the woods and all the dogs that get walked.
Trent Park is open all year during daylight hours – it is a park after all – and can be accessed through three entrances. One next to Cockfosters Station (there’s a car park here too), a ten minute walk from Oakwood Station (both stations on the Piccadilly Line) and there is also another car park along Hadley Road.
