Barnet Society 75th anniversary walks

Enjoy five short walks in our local countryside recommended by Owen Jones.
The previous update of 29th June 2019 referred to the progress made by the Darlands Conservation Trust since their inception in September 2017. True to their word, they have carried out some very significant work in the reserve over the past year but the working parties have had stop since the COVID 19 impacted on all group activities. I am very grateful to Vicki Philips, herself a keen rambler, who told me about these improvements to the reserve which helped my later visit.
Darlands Conservation Trust The previous update of 20th December 2018 referred to the Trust that had been set up on 4th September 2017 by the London Borough of Barnet. The trustees included representatives of some local Residents Associations, The London Wildlife Trust and 2 local councillors. The area is described in detail in Rambles Round Barnet Volume 2 Walk 6.
Local ramblers who have followed the guiding notes in ‘Rambles Round Barnet’ Part 1 for Walk 1 may well be familiar with the changing fortunes of the footpath that leads from Totteridge Common to the Dollis Valley. It is referred to in paragraph 7 of this walk and runs parallel to, and just to the west of, Lime Grove.
