4 walkers on time, one lagging, catching us up at The Waters Edge big chain pub at the Lido. 5 Plenty of birdsong in the woods, and not many other people, so a perfect quiet walk on dry and hard ground. 1 took a bus back to the tube from the Lido, the others took a variant route back, around the Lido (plenty of Mayflies), then through Pinn Meadows for a meal at a Bangladeshi restaurant near the tube. A fine evening in dry and warm weather.

3 in hot weather.
We improvised the route through the ancient wood a little compared to the writeup, and got to the lido when there were still plenty of people swimming or generally mucking about on the beach. Hillingdon Council seem to have invested a fair amount of money in recent years in up to date facilities incl. a cafe, toilets etc.
Off to the Water's Edge pub, where disappointingly the cooler had broken down and no draught beer was served, and the kitchen had closed as well.
Back to Ruislip Manor by bus and a farewell drink at the Wetherspoon's...
There are several other woods around the northern edge of the pond, so this may make a good daytime suburban winter walk.
