Activity

Our second evening walk is a 3 mile linear walk from Ruislip Manor site to the Ruislip Lido. We first explore the Manor Farm site. The Manor House dates in part from the 16th century and the Great Barn even earlier. We then visit the Almshouses by St Martins Church before walking through Kings College Fields. We will see the Moderne buildings on Park Street, a 1930s anomaly in this otherwise typical corner of Metroland. Then into Ruislip Woods, we will continue to the Lido beach and then a circuit of the lake (including a level crossing of the Lido railway) to end at the Waters Edge Pub. Option to walk back from here or catch bus back to start.
