Are you one of those walkers who likes to see a bench to sit on when you visit a park? Fear not. The meadows to the east of the railway viaduct have lots of seating, in the form of nicely shaped rocks arrayed along the banks of the small stream that flows through the meadow feeding the largest pond. From which you can observe what is happening in the ponds themselves. Such as the marsh marigolds which are making a welcome reappearance; they were planted about four years ago, but last year’s show was very minimal. This year its a bit better, but too soon to say whether they will become permanently establish.
The photos also show a new stream we have recently acquired! Unfortunately, its course runs directly over the footpath from Greenford to Gurnell along the river Brent. You can already see the (muddy) diversion that walkers have made to avoid the main flow. Such is nature!
