Walking across Ham Common

I walk across various parts of Ham Common several times a week (often these days to see the cygnets, ducklings and other baby birds) and it remains one of the nicest places locally for a quick stroll.

This is the start of the avenue of trees that leads across Ham Common and then all the way to Ham House. New trees have been planted in recent years to fill in some of the gaps in the avenue but sadly two have these have recently been vandalised; I hope that they will be replaced soon.

Along the avenue there are a few benches where you can pause to watch the cricket, children playing, people walking dogs and other people, like myself, just enjoying the common for what it is.
