23 January (Part 2) - Take the scenic route

The new high level path around the Lesnes Abbey ruin should provide even better views across the smoggy London skyline. On a clear day you will see Hampstead Heath and perhaps the reason for removing the ancient yew hedges is becoming clear.

Nearer at hand is the Mittal Tower at Stratford, St. Paul’s Cathedral and Canary Wharf but the BT Tower disappeared behind the Gherkin years ago. I wonder what the Hub proposal at Abbey Wood will take out.
It will be good to have better placed solid paths in Lesnes Abbey park to replace some of the mud tracks and I am sure the motorcyclists will appreciate it.

I’m less sure about wheel chair users. A steep down hill section followed by a sharp bend with an adverse camber should ensure a few high speed tumbles. Perhaps it’s all academic, the entrance gates makes wheel chair entry near impossible.
