Opposite the Waldorf cinema was the Walford Cafe before we came to the T junction at Stratford Road, where we made a right turn toward Stoney Lane.

After turning into Stoney Lane after a few yards we make a right turn at the Lion & Lamb into Highgate road where on the right we can see the bundy clock outside the Brewers Arms. Then we start to make our way up Highgate road.

We are now approaching Ladypool Road before crossing over we take a look back the way we have come then continuing on we pass a car sales pitch that was next to Moydens Garage or Turnpike Service Station if you prefer that name.
