A quiet walk in Ham Common Woods

All of Ham Common Woods is quiet but the triangular section between Ham Gate Avenue, Richmond Park and Richmond Golf Course is quieter still due to the simple fact that it is hemmed in on two sides and so you cannot walk through it to get anywhere. But the fact that it is very quiet makes it attractive to those of us who like to forget that we live in the middle of a very large urban sprawl and are happy to just walk among trees; it is the journey that matters, not the destination.
