New Lexicons: Willesden to Horsenden Hill

New Lexicons: Willesden to Horsenden Hill | Willesden Green Town | Scoop.it

With a Sunday to spare and inspired by two separate London books that I’d recently read, This Other London by John Rogers and the anthology Mount London(published by Penned in the Margins), I decided to take it upon myself to walk from my flat in Willesden Green to this place Horsenden Hill that I’d heard so much about recently. Stories of a fragment of wooded, heathy countryside not far from Wembley, peopled by cheetah people and Sylvester McCoy, were enough to tempt to me.

Isn't this great to know just how good our local food is? And we have the Social recently opened and The Queensbury Deli has re-opened with new decor and Mezzoroma have expanded their offerings - lots to eat in the High Road... Pity about the photo though of Sushi-Say, looks like they could do with new shutters and awning!
