HAMPSTEAD HEATH

is only a few miles north of central London!
It is a glorious area of about 790 acres of sweeping  meadows, magical glades,  mysterious crannies, ancient woodlands, ponds <that the visitor can swim in or fish in>, valleys,  hedgerows   and carefully preserved Heathland!
The Heath has a rich history  and heritage.
THE HEATH IS FOREVER CHANGING!
