Brent river and Grand Union Canal Walk

We haven’t done any walking since the coastal walk back in early September and today looked like the weather would be good so I planned a long walk. We did around 11 miles from Sudbury Town underground and along Brent river valley and the Grand Union Canal down to Thames and Kew Bridge then got the train back. Some great sights, lovely to see the seasons change in the trees and a pretty good constitutional, both feeling a bit exhausted now…
