What locals say about Monken Hadley

  1. One of the benefits of not being in central London is that we have some fantastic commons and parkland to explore; my two favourites are Hadley Green and Monken Hadley Common. Oakhill Park is also a great place to stretch your legs and even hosts a free festival in the summer.
