Central Line Walk – Day 8
North Acton to Hangar Lane
Having completed the Ealing Broadway branch of the Central line I headed back to North Acton to walk the West Ruislip branch.
I left the station, went up Park Royal Road and into Coronation Road. Around Coronation Road are many industrial units. I spotted one belonging to the company where I order my printed photos from.
Hangar Lane to Perivale
I continue west along the Western Avenue and pass a golf course.

The Hoover building is a good example of art deco architecture. It used to house the vacuum cleaner company. I cross a foot bridge, go north up South Horsenden Lane and reach Perivale underground station.
Perivale to Greenford
To make a change from the Western Avenue I continue north until I reach the Grand Union Canal.
Greenford to Northolt
On the next part of my walk I pass a bakery on Oldfield Lane and an allotment on Carr Road.
Northolt to South Ruislip
On Eastcote lane a new sports centre is being built. At the moment it doesn’t quite look like the artist’s impression.
South Ruislip to Ruislip Gardens
At the end of Station Approach I turn right and walk past R.A.F Northolt Aerodrome. It isn’t a very busy air field. I didn’t see a single plane taking off or landing whilst I was nearby.
Ruislip Gardens to West Ruislip
I continue up West End Road passing some shops and houses.
