Britain’s 13 best autumn walks
Woodland strolls, moorland romps and even a leafy city amble are included in our great British autumn walks guide
A linear nature reserve that runs for 4.5miles, Parkland Walk follows the old railway line from Finsbury Park to Alexandra Palace. Since the last train ran 55 years ago, lots of trees, including oak, ash, hawthorn, cherry and rowan, have grown close in to the track. The route offers excellent views across wooded north London, especially of Queen’s Wood, from the remnants of the old viaducts. For more details, and a map, visit www.parkland-walk.org.uk .
