Traditional, rare breed longhorn cattle (I think they are most likely Scottish Highland Longhorns, but I'm not certain) graze in the parkland of the Duke of Northumberland's great house at Syon, near Isleworth.
This parkland also contains the magnificent glasshouse I showed several days ago.
From Brentford canal docks we cross the River Brent and enter Syon Park. We move from the Industrial Revolution and urban "grey" into the "English Landscape" within little more than 200 metres.
Over the next few days we'll walk from there back along the Thames into Richmond.
