Waterways of Finchley - The Walk

Waterways of Finchley - The Walk

The recent Waterways of Finchley slide shows where we looked at all of Finchley’s waterways and water features proved to be very popular. Many people were amazed at what we have right here in Finchley and there were many requests to do a walk of The Waterways of Finchley, so bowing to popular request, here it is, spread over two Sunday afternoons.
Part One - Sunday 15th July at 12-00pm
A fascinating and picturesque tour of Finchleys water features

Meet outside East Finchley tube station at 11-45am for a 12 noon start.

We will follow Mutton Brook through Lyttleton Playing Fields and Northway Gardens to Brookland Rise. Then we will visit the water cascade at Willow Tree Gardens, The Garden of Hope, Briarfield Green Square, Pentland Centre lake and fountain and stop at Avenue House Café. After lunch we will follow Mutton Brook to Brookdales for a quick look at The Decoy lakes before setting off along Dollis Brook, to Finchley Weir for a finish at the bottom of Hendon Lane where we can catch the 143 bus back to Finchley Central and East Finchley tubes.

4.2 miles to Avenue House. Total distance to finish - 6.4 miles.

This is a very pretty walk and well worth missing Sunday lunch for. Bring packed lunch or buy food at Avenue House café


  1. I wish I could make it this year!

  2. It sounds like a magical time, I need more nature walks and environmentally enlightening activities. Being around trees all day can get boring!
