Hooray, Spring is here at last. Here are some pictures of the Parkland Walk, a 4.5 mile green walkway which follows a disused railway line from Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace. We love getting out for a good old tramp along there as we can escape the city for a while. Local cyclists, joggers and dog walkers love the Parkland Walk too. This is our favourite spot, a couple of tree trunks that are used by resting places and sometimes for the odd impromptu picnic. Did you know that the word “crocus” is Latin for Saffon? The three stigmas are often dried and used in cooking. Do read about our other adventures on another disused railway line here.
