Greenacre Walks - Walk the Nicky Line

GREENACR
WALK


 Walk the Nicky Line


Sunday 30th July 2017.
Meet in the car park Mill Hill Broadway station 11-20am
where we will purchase group cheap day return tickets
(Entrance Bunns Lane)
RSVP: mikegee1968@gmail.com

Either bring a packed lunch or pre-order lunch:


The Yard Pizzeria - Food MUST be preordered
020 8346 5503 by Sat 29th
1 - Marinara Tomato base with oregano & garlic £6-50
2 - Margherita Tomato base with mozzarella £8-90
3 - Diavola Tomato base, mozzarella & pepperoni £9-90
4 - Cotto and Funghi £10-90


We continue our theme of following disused railway lines but this time something slightly different - we take the train from Mill Hill Broadway four stops up the line to Harpenden where we will find the 'Nicky Line'. We are getting a special party rate £5.00 from Thames Link Trains, this means staying in the group there and back. Otherwise it's £7.50 return.


Once we leave Harpenden we are crossing Hertfordshire countryside and open farmland - there are no drop out points along the way. If you start you're in to the finish.​

​After our stop at Cafe Strada we will catch the train back to Mill Hill Broadway​. We estimate that we will catch the first southbound train from Harpenden that runs after 4-30pm.

Don't forget to bring a bus pass or Oyster card and a bottle of water! The cost of this walk is £3-50 per person.

WALK

Meet outside Mill Hill East tube station 11-45am

We continue our exploration of disused railway lines by following the line from Mill Hill East. It had been planned to run the Northern Line through Edgware and Elstree to Bushey Heath but although much work was carried out it didn’t actually open. Most of the line to Edgware is still in existence as greenways.
