Michaelmas Daisies on Pryors Field

Pink Michaelmas daisies are now flowering on Pryors Field. They're considered an invasive non-native species, but their little pink flowers look pretty regardless.

9 September 2012: To Pitt's Garden

Entrance to Pitt's Garden, Sandy Heath

This shows the entrance in the wall at North End Avenue, leading up to Pitt's Garden, which isn't a garden but a part of Sandy Heath. The Garden takes its name from William Pitt, who lived in a house there in the 18th century. The house was demolished after the Second World War, and its former garden became part of Hampstead Heath. Today, all that is left of it is a lonely archway, some steps, and this wall.

At the Pond on the Tumulus Field

The little pond at the bottom of the Tumulus Field was created a couple of years ago, from a natural well in the field. This is the view from the pond towards the Model Boating Pond.
