After my cycling injury last week, al least this wonderful alternative is on the doorstep. #sunrise #swim on #hampsteadheath #hampsteadheathponds #myhampsteadheath #hampstead #london_enthusiast #travelinlondon #thelondonlifeinc #prettylittlelondon #mysecretlondon #prettylondon #londoncity #unlimitedlondon #toplondonphotos #hampstead #kenwoodhouse #lido #parliamenthilllido ...

💛 Heath views 💛

#qotd ~ Tell me one thing you love about your neighbourhood/the area you live in.

I absolutely adore where I live, and the Heath is definitely one of my favourite bits of my area -- endless walks in the woods, the trees, the wildlife, the stunning views, the lovely chats with neighbours (and their dogs)

Happy Friday, people!

Kenwood House, the north London gem beside Hampstead Heath, seen from behind its Sham Bridge today..
.
The Grade II listed fake bridge has divided opinions at Kenwood for more than 200 years. As long ago as 1793, the landscape gardener Humphrey Repton derided it as “below the dignity of Kenwood”, just a decade or so after it had been erected by Robert and James Adam for the second Earl Mansfield..
.
Repton proposed replacing the facade with an actual bridge. Luckily for those of us who enjoy such quirks, this was one of Repton's plans that the Mansfields did not accept..

Hampstead Heath, ladies pond, London.

This was my first visit to this small oasis, a fragment of wild nature nestled in the heart of London, and goodness it was lovely.

There are 3 swimming areas here; a mixed pond which is closest to Hampstead Heath Overground Station, a Ladies Pond and a Male Pond, both of which are closer to the Highgate and Kenwood end of Hampstead Heath.

Here are 3 books set here to learn more about the magic and tranquility of these ponds: .📖 ‘At the Pond: Swimming at Hampstead Ladies’ Pond’ - Esther Freud, Margaret Drabble & Sophie Mackintosh .📖 ‘Taking the Waters: A Swim around Hampstead Heath’ - Caitlin Davies, Ruth Coiney .📖 ‘Pondlife: A Swimmer’s Journal’ Al Alvarez

Have you been?

Christmas Eve always my favourite day. we won’t be heading to the pub to celebrate this year but we’ll still go for a long walk like we always do.
.
I’m going to take a break from Insta over Christmas, it won’t be the same but we’re going to make the most of it. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas, take care & stay safe x...

The Dairy at Kenwood House, by Hampstead Heath in north London, which was built by George Saunders, the 2nd Earl Mansfield's architect from 1794-6, for the Earl's wife, Louisa..
.
Tending a dairy was a fashionable hobby for aristocratic women. But such dairies were still functional, and the one at Kenwood would have supplied the house with butter, milk and cream, while ice was stored in the ice-house below..
.
There are three small dairy buildings, with views over the Kenwood Estate and Hampstead Heath, comprising: the small, colourfully decorated octagonal tea room, where Louisa entertained her friends, the rooms where the dairymaid lived, and the dairy room. The original marble benches in the dairy room are still here, although the more than 30 black marble milk pans and basins listed in the accounts are missing..
