Walked Wood Green to Dalston. Good urban route which avoids (almost) all the big roads, and takes advantage of green space and pedestrian paths, without a great deal of deviation. The passageway up (or down) the Harringay Ladder is a treat for walkers: modern urban planners should take note.

I know this part of London well, but still was surprised by a lovely urban orchard at Butterfield Green. Classic Slow Ways ‘there’s always a new surprise around the corner’ find!

I had no problems with the route directions, and thoroughly enjoyed my walk.

Finsbury Park and Clissold Park provide refreshments and benches.

Opening Hours: Finsbury Park is open all day and night, but Clissold Park and Butterfield Green close shortly after sunset, so a detour would be needed for nighttime walking.

I walked from Dalston to Wood Green.
From busy Dalston Station (shops & cafes) there is a busy urban road, turn right past a church to Butterfield Green a lovely park, then a play space and another small park before another road, a quiet one this time. This takes you to Clissold Park a well kept and open park with trees for shade. Exiting the park another wide quiet road leads to Finsbury Park a large open park with lots of sports facilities. At the top of the hill bear right down to the New River. There is a kink to cross the railway line passing Harringay Green Lanes Station then up through Harringay Passage. I enjoyed this passage, this fracture through the houses, traffic free, varied, popping out to cross quiet roads and back into the passage. Urban porpoising. The road crossings have raised roads or dropped pavements so easy for wheel chairs. The passage ends close to Wood Green. The station appears after passing The Mall shopping centre.
This is a lovely and varied walk through streets, big and small parks, and a long passageway. Wheelchair friendly.
