Harrow & Wealdstone: Walk 2 with the Society

Event Details

Event name:Harrow & Wealdstone
Event code:[11/50]
Venue:Various – see details
Date(s):29/10/2011
Harrow is an ancient hilltop town but in the 19th and 20th centuries it expanded to the north of the hill, in the process absorbing an area named Greenhill and the nearby village of Wealdstone. Greenhill has developed as a major retail centre while Wealdstone became an industrial area; most of the large industry has gone, though some smaller enterprises remain. In 1972 the Council built a new Civic Centre between Harrow and Wealdstone, and developments continue with shopping malls and a leisure centre. The walk, led by John Goodier, will see several churches and chapels, a cinema or two, a variety of shop fronts and more.

Cost: Members only £12

Meet: Harrow on the Hill underground station 10.00 am. The walk will end near Harrow and Wealdstone underground station.

I went on this walk on Saturday. Check out our Flickr account and the section above on Fieldwork, look for Walk 2.
