Horsenden Hill

Horsenden view

Horsenden Hill rises from the suburban sprawl between Perivale, Sudbury Hill and North Greenford if not majestically then at least with a large degree of style!
The first time I came across the Hill was when I was taking driving lessons and travelled along its Western flank along Horsenden Lane. I couldn't believe that I was basically travelling along a country lane with a wooded hill beside me, only minutes after being stuck in the traffic in downtown Wembley.
Since that first passing visit I have returned many times over the years witnessing in particular the fall and rise of Wembley stadiums old and new from the hills summit.
It is possible to spend hours wandering over the hill and exploring the woods and meadows that surround it. The view from the top of the hill is pretty good too. The planes taking off and landing from Heathrow can be seen to the South West, Harrow on the Hill school for toffs lies to the North and as mentioned Wembley Stadium to the North East. On a good day a panorama of much of London can be seen from the Hill although as the top of the hill is quite woody in places, you have to wander about a bit to get the full picture but that is no hardship.
Horsenden Hill is easily accessable by Road and Horsenden Lane travels between the A40 Western Ave to the South and Whitton Avenue A4090 to the North. The Hill is also a short walk from Perivale Central Line and Sudbury Hill Piccadilly line tube stations which are located more or less on the Southern and Northern edges of it( a bit of a hike though from either).
