I then put this together, by the grace of Geograph, grid square by grid square, and … neglected to post it. (There were Other Things happening, and then there was Cheltenham, and it was Lambing Season, and….) By that as it may, here it is, probably with further routes in due course:

Magnificent! I look forward to further routes in due course.

I was reminded of the famous passage in Howard's End:

Like many others who have lived long in a great capital, she had strong feelings about the various railway termini. They are our gates to the glorious and the unknown. Through them we pass out into adventure and sunshine, to them, alas! we return. In Paddington all Cornwall is latent and the remoter west; down the inclines of Liverpool Street lie fenlands and the illimitable Broads; Scotland is through the pylons of Euston; Wessex behind the poised chaos of Waterloo.

This reminded me that one of my staff has done a thing (not sure whether it's contemporary archaeology, art, or exercise) whereby a group walk from different points into the centre of London. I am told that walking out of Terminal 5 at Heathrow is not often done by anyone.

One forgets how small London is, really.
