› Walking the Capital Ring - Section 11

Walking the Capital Ring - Section 11

In which we finish up Section 10, and complete Section 11. With the weather still being warm, we decided to only do one section at a time, instead of two.

Section 11

The first kilometre we walked along the residential streets of the mainly Jewish neighbourhood of Hendon. As it was the Sabbath, there were lots of people out and about, including one wearing a Shtreimel.

The route brought us alongside the river Brent, and later along Mutton Brook. We had to make a slightly annoying detour crossing the North Circular at some point as the path under the bridge was closed for refurbishment.

As a matter of fact, most of the route was alongside Mutton Brook. At Lyttleton Playing Fields, the Ring followed an odd route over a nettle infested path, around tennis pitches, while a perfectly nice path in front of it would have been the better choice. Coming off the path along the brook, the route was sign posted to go through East Finchley station, but it was closed for Weekend Engineering Work. Instead, we had to walk around the block a little to continue our walk.

Before entering Highgate Wood, we passed by a garden with large thistles which were being feasted on by bumble bees. The wood was a nice change from open paths, as the trees prevent the Sun from beating down on us too much.

The last part of the walk went through Queen's Wood, which was particularly hilly. At the end of the walk we ended up on the hill with Highgate station, from where we took a bus to find some refreshing beverages (read: beer), before continuing home.

Walking the Capital Ring - Section 10

I'm way behind typing these up. About two months!

Section 10

What should have been a quick tube ride up to South Kenton, ended up taking nearly 2 hours. You guess it, Sunday Rail Engineering Works. On top of that, we got a replacement bus, with a driver that had no idea where to go. Initially he went the wrong direction along the line. As it was a bit unclear whether it would actually stop at South Kenton, we got off one stop earlier at North Wembley, and walked to the start instead.

Once we started with the walk, we quickly realized that it was unlikely that we were going to walk two stages (10 and 11). The first 10 minutes made it very clear it was going to be warm, and very sweaty.

We quickly came through Preston Park, and upon Preston "High" Road, which we crossed to walk through a few residential streets to start up our climb up the hill through the Barn Hill Open Space. We had a quick water break at the stop—it was really warm and humid—for some relaxing. The Ring then goes around the little lake on the top of the hill, where you can find a trigpoint and a lovely view of Wembley Stadium.

After crossing a road, we had another small climb in Fryent Country Park. It was a bit tricky to follow the route there with vague signing, and the presence of lots of little rows of trees, making navigating quite tricky. As this section of the Capital Ring was mapped well on OpenStreetMap, we find our way out, and assisted a local to find her way out of the maze as well.

We continued among more residential streets and ended up circling St. Andrew's Kingsbury church. After having a look at its cemetery we walked around the Welsh Harp Sailing Association. The name comes from nearby Welsh Harp, which is a large water reservoir to supply London homes with drinking water. A large part of the rest of Section 10 goes past this reservoir. We stopped again for a little water break.

After crossing the narrow bridge over the Silk Stream we shortly came upon West Hendon Broadway. Section 10 goes all the way to Hendon Park, but we chickened out early here. I ended up extensively mapping many of the shops along the Broadway. From here on, it was a straight bus down to Kilburn.

› Netgen Layouts debut

We are proud to present the first version of Netgen Layouts, an easy and flexible way of managing layouts for Symfony-based web solutions. Netgen Layouts is an add-on tool on top of an existing CMS or e-commerce system. It should serve as a strong collaboration point where site builders, UX designers, and developers can manage and maintain the website layout structure in a simple but extensible way. With Netgen Layouts we want to reinvent the website implementation process and make it more agile.
