Part one of the Ring went through no less than 6 parks and commons, going steadily uphill from river level to 121 metres high, at the highest point of the whole ring. Good views of the Thames Barrier, scrubby run down parks and housing estates, and pleasant forest greenery provided a variety of backdrops.
