Ingatestone

A drive from Finchley, Sun, 1 Jan 2023 by David Howard

After bursting a tyre in a pothole on New Year's day my planned trip to Cambridgeshire was delayed till the following week as I couldn't go too far without carrying a spare just in case. I began by taking my Geograph New Year's day picture in Finchley while I bought some lunch, and aimed for Eastern Avenue to head north from Romford.

The weather was quite good, dry and not too cold, and I covered the patch from there to Ingatestone where I hadn't covered before. As it got dark early I turned back towards Ongar as it was too late to aim anywhere else but because of Christmas lights managed some nice views of them while it was getting dark. I always find alternate plans where one is stopped for any reason, such as heavy rain, travel problems and the like, and save the longer ones for better conditions.
