Gallions Hill

I love the little surprises this city can throw at you from time to time. This afternoon, it being overcast and feeling decidedly ''meh'', I took a walk to Woolwich. Crossing the road to the old arsenal, I thought I'd trundle eastwards along the river for a bit. I had never been that way before, and wanted to see where the path lead. I was in for a surprise: I found a newly opened park I didn't know existed. Gallions hill is a huge symmetrical mound with a path spiralling up to it's summit. It is well kept in terms of planting, but the view from the summit was what took my breath - you could see for miles across London. The place intrigued me: I wondered whether it was an old hill fort or something - it would certainly have been in a good position for one. As I drove home, patches of blue sky starting to break through the clouds, I promised myself I would go there again soon, hopefully with Lyn. After all, such a spot is an excellent place for two lovers to find a bit of privacy, as the lights of the city twinkle before them.
