We have planned a session of litter picking and cutting back vegetation along the towpath from Willesden Junction to Kensal Green (approx. two miles).
We’ll meet at 9:30am by the corner of Third Avenue and Ilbert Street, by the noticeboard at the entrance to Queen’s Park Gardens, Then, as a group, take the bus to Willesden Junction. Alternatively, you can meet us at the towpath by Old Oak Lane Bridge, NW10 6DN.
The stretch of waterway we will be walking along is approximately two miles in total, so please remember to wear sensible warm clothes and sturdy shoes or boots (if you have them). All equipment will be provided and Hi-Vis clothing as this is a high traffic area used by cyclists. Hot drinks will be provided.
We expect to finish at Sainsburys Kensal Green around 2pm. If you’re not too tired, we can walk/take the bus, on to Little Venice where the IWA Canalway Cavalcade Festival begins on Saturday. Click here for more details.
