Summary: The Green London Way, completed in 1991 was the first long distance footpath around and at times within London and one of the very first entirely urban long distance footpaths in England. The walk is a journey through the city's social and natural history and especially the lost stories of the people who built and lived in the city. The walk is also a tribute to the open spaces of London and to those who have struggled and who still campaign against the developers to preserve them. Areas of London visited during the walk include Stratford, Woolwich, Greenwich, Forest Hill, Crystal Palace, Balham, Wimbledon, Richmond, Kew Bridge, Hanwell, Greenford, South Kenton, Brent Cross, Hampstead, Finsbury Park, Clapton and Victoria Park.
