  Historic walk leaflet
by toonsarah

The local council have recently published a useful leaflet describing a self-guided historic walk around Ealing. You can pick it up in many of the local shops (I spotted it at my hairdresser’s). The walk should take about one and a half hours to complete (more of course if you stop for refreshments at one of the several good hostelries passed en route) and takes in several of the sights I’ve described in my Things to Do tips, including Haven Green, the Ealing Film Studios, and Walpole and Lammas Parks. There are brief descriptions of all the sights and some interesting old photos of many of them. There is also an overview of the Borough’s history, from the first Stone and Iron Age settlements through the major expansion of Victorian times, to redevelopments in the late twentieth century and plans for more change in the immediate future. Well worth picking up if you’re in the area for a few days.
