Go blackberry picking on Wormwood Scrubs

Your author has it on good authority from his West London contacts that Wormwood Scrubs is currently the hot place to seek blackberries.

Probably most famous for the nearby Category B men's prison, which has hosted the likes of Keith Richards and Pete Doherty and was the setting for parts of The Italian Job, Wormwood Scrubs is a 200 acre green space on the border between Hammersmith and Fulham Borough and Kensington. It is the biggest open space in H&F and one of the largest commons in London.

Whilst the Scrubs are also home to ponies, your author understands that as summer comes to a crescendo, families are descending with passion seeking out the best berries, so get down early if you want enough to make even a tiny pot of jam.
