Parkland Walk

Off The Beaten Track

Parkland Walk is a 4.5-mile (7.2 km) linear, green walkway in north London which follows the course of the railway that used to run between Finsbury Park through Stroud Green, Crouch End, Highgate and Muswell Hill to Alexandra Palace.

It is one of 3 statutory Local Nature Reserves (LNRs) in Haringey (the others being Queen's Wood and Railway Fields). It was declared a Local Nature Reserve in 1990 and is London's longest LNR.

The path passes through both Islington and Haringey following the bridges and cuttings of the line. The route of the railway passed through tunnels on each side of the closed surface section of Highgate station but this section is closed to walkers for safety reasons. 

This free walk goes as far as Crouch Hill.
