Event description
Walk through Northolt village and climb the artificial mounds of Northala fields for panoramic views across London.

About this Event

There is evidence of a settlement in Northolt since Anglo-Saxon times. A small village called Northala was recorded in the Domesday Book (1086). It remained a small, isolated village until the building of the Grand Union Canal in 1801. The railway arrived in 1907 and the gradual process of suburban development began. When the Western Avenue (now the A40) was built in the 1930s, it divided Northolt in half and also increased the pace of house-building.

On this walk we will discover remnants of the old village including nineteenth century farm labourers cottages and a fourteenth century church. From here we'll cross the site of the old moated manor house and head to the Grand Union Canal. The canal towpath takes us under the A40 to Northala Fields with their four artificial mounds built from the rubble of the old Wembley Stadium. We'll climb the highest of these for panoramic 360-degree views across London before returning via a circular route to the village. Here there is the option to stop for a drink, or even Sunday lunch, at the historic Crown Inn.

There is a circular gravelled path with a gentle gradient leading to the top of the mound. Some of the walk will be on unsurfaced paths which can sometimes be muddy so please wear appropriate footwear.

This circular walk will take about two hours, starting and finishing at Northolt Station.

Please check travel arrangements on the day at Transport for London's Journey Planner site.
