North Circular Traffic Jam, Bounds Green

Southgate to East Finchley (without Octopus)

More North Circular Road related wanderings – from back in November 2014 (see the full mapped route here). This time taking in the deco suburbia of Southgate, bizarre graffiti at New Southgate, hidden (retail) parkland and the vast gothic St Pancras and Islington cemetery.

The walk finished up at East Finchley with it’s lovely Edwardian / Victorian facades above the modern shop fronts and art-deco Phoenix Cinema.
