Harrow & Wealdstone to Kenton
My Bakerloo line underground walk starts at Harrow & Wealdstone at the North end of the line. I’m going North to South rather than the other way as this way most of my walk is down hill.
Just outside the station is a memorial to the victims of the Wealdstone train crash that occurred in 1952.
I head down Station Road past the Harrow Council building as well as Sakonis Vegetarian Restaurant which has a good Indian buffet.
After passing a building where no one seems to want to live I get to Kenton station.
Kenton to South Kenton
Near the station is a high point which shows how hilly this area is.
I cross the railway line and into Northwick Park.
On the South side of the park are some expensive looking houses, and South Kenton tube station.
South Kenton to North Wembley
I follow Nathans Road, and take a footpath to Byron Road before reaching North Wembley tube station.
North Wembley to Wembley Central
Llanover Road and St. Johns Road are both residential roads.
At the end of St John’s Road is Wembley Central underground station.
Wembley Central to Stonebridge Park
Along High Road are shops and Brent House.
Near Juniper Close is a good view of Wembley Stadium behind the houses.
Harrow Road is home to plenty of shops selling fast food.
Just beyond this tower is Stonebridge Park tube station.
Stonebridge Park to Harlesden
I decided to take a non-direct to Harlesden and go along the Grand Union Canal instead of along the streets. To get to the canal I took a bridge over the A406 North Circular and then went through a business park.
The canal is quiet but there were a few canal boats and a flapping bird along the way.
To get to Harlesden tube station I leave the canal and walk along Acton Lane.
Harlesden to Willesden Junction
Here are a few of the sights along Harley Road.
After getting to the end of Harley Road I reach Willesden Junction.
Willesden Junction to Kensal Green
I get back onto High Street Harlesden by walking through the railway station footpath.
Houses and shops line my way to Kensal Green.
Soon I get to Kensal Green which is an unusual looking building for a tube station.
