View towards Hare Park from the East Gate. Waterton would use this gate to visit friends in nearby Crofton. The lane or track that used to head towards Hare Park has now gone and the public footpath that once ran through Hare Park from Hare Park Junction was diverted some time ago, leaving Hare Park in splendid isolation. However, HS2 might liven up that area a little.
