13. South Kenton to Brent Cross

page 196 Over Barn Hill
Bullet points 7-9: Correspondent Des de Moor writes that owing to recent changes, such as the removal of a sign post, the following instructions might be clearer for these bullet points;
  • Cross the road and go through the gap in the hedgerow on the opposite side. Continue ahead, following the hedge on your right, until you pass a bench and reach a path crossing with a straggling hedge coming in from the left.
  • Turn left and almost immediately right through a gap. Continue on the path ahead which runs diagonally across the field to another gap.
  • Go through the gap and on the other side take the path forking right. Shortly go through another gap and continue ahead towards the far right hand corner of the next field.
Resume instructions from next bullet point.

Bullet point 3; The 'pitches' referred to as being n the left may no longer exist.

Bullet point 4; The 'pencil-thin poplar' referred to is no longer visible. The 'small dead end of tarmac', however, still clearly indicates the route.

Bullet point 11; Hilary Scotton has written to say that the footpath beyond the Cool Oak Lane bridge is heavily overgrown and impassable (though it may be possible to follow it in winter when the growth has died down). For the time being it may be advisable to follow the alternative route below, although unfortunately this  now involves a stretch of road walking;
  • On crossing the bridge continue ahead along Cool Oak Lane and take the first turning on the right (Woolmead Avenue)
  • Follow Woolmead Avenue and take the second turning on the left (Stuart Avenue) until it connects with West Hendon Broadway.
  • Turn right along the Broadway until you cross the end of Priestley Way and the river. Here you rejoin the route from bullet point 1 on page 201.

Final bullet point; The 'covered' walkway is no longer covered, though the pedestrian route remains clear.
