One Tree Hill, Honor Oak

One Tree Hill is a beautiful scrap of woodland a stone's throw from Honor Oak Station. Inspired by the account on the Original Sonic Truth blog, we walked around it this morning for the first time.

On a sunny morning, the kids loved walking between brilliantly lit clearings and through a maze of dark pathways that cover the two-acre nature reserve. We were there for an hour and didn't see another human being there for the entire time.

One Tree Hill also represents yet another amazing local vantage point to look out over London. The hill that still features an octagonal Anti-Zeppelin gun emplacement beautifully frames views of the London Eye, Strata and the Shard.
