Do not adjust your sets: this is London. We set out for a country walk last weekend. Usually we head down into leafy Surrey for our rambles, this time we thought that a rural London walk was in order.
Yep that leafy lane is London, albeit at the very Southern edge in fact for a mile or so we walked along the county border. Our six mile circuit was entirely in farm or park land, occasionally we caught glimpses of the tower blocks of London glimmering in the distance.
This part of Sutton has a long history of lavender growing and the Mayfield Lavender Farm continues this tradition. We started the walk striding out amid the rows of lavender, in the summer this makes for fine pictures but less so in the autumn. Click here for a map.
