THIS DAY LAST YEAR: 20 FEB 2017 – I walked around Highbury Fields, Arsenal Stadium, Gillespie Park, and Finsbury Park.
Highbury Fields is quite small; it is really not very impressive, just a small bit of clod inbetween densely packed houses.
There were some beautifully painted walls along the way
And a cute little gap between houses at a T-junction
Emirates Stadium (Arsenal’s home ground) is something I always see on the train but never really bothered to walk into before.
The main feature of this space is that it is incredibly windy.
I don’t think I’ll want to be here on game days if this is any indication of the masses of crowds…
A very linear Park
With corners you could get lost in
History of the park
It begins to look like parts of Finsbury Park along the tracks
Tumbling right back into Finsbury Park across the road
BONUS: a handsome little duck
