Pitshanger Lane and the area to be visited

My task for the afternoon is to prepare an ad for the 26th of March tour of Pitshanger area. May I be excused, Dear Reader?

Here is the invitation:

welcomes you to the tour of

The lovely Pitshanger Village area

Hosted by Joanna Dudzinska

When: Sunday, March 26th,  from 12.30 PM - 3 PM

Meeting point: Ealing Broadway Station entrance, New Ealing Broadway, W5 2NU, London.
This walk will take us across Ealing Haven towards an area often referred to as Pitshanger Village with a pretty village-like street called Pitshanger Lane which was crowned best high street in London in 2015. There will be a lot to see and talk about including Brentham Sports Club, St Barnabas’ Church, a war memorial and Bentham, the first garden suburb in London to be built on cooperative principles. 

We will walk through Pitshanger Park by the river Brent and across the golf course to end the tour at the medieval St Mary’s Church in Perivale. You may like to stay with me at the church for ‘THE BRONTE VOICES’, a dramatised reading celebrating the Bronte family by Robin MacGibbon (entry free – with retiring collection), take a 10-minute walk via a footbridge over Western Avenue to Perivale tube station (Central line) or go back to Pitshanger Lane and catch one of the buses back to Ealing Broadway.

The tour costs £10 per person and accompanying children can come free of charge. Join in if you want to see bits of London that are off the beaten track, learn about this area, meet new people and/or practise your English.

For more information see the Facebook page: Ealing Walking, Talking and Exploring Group or pm/email Joanna:

Below are a few pictures of the area to be visited soon:

Pitshanger Park, seen below, is sometimes confused with Walpole Park in Ealing Broadway because the building in the park is known as Pitzhanger Manor.

As you can see, Pitshanger Park, like any other park, is a popular dog walking area.
