The Lea Valley Walk: From the Source to the Thames

The Lea Valley Walk: From the Source to the Thames (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


The Lea Valley Walk is one of the finest and most varied walking routes around the capital, and an excellent way to get out of (and into) London. It offers 50 miles of traffic-free walking, tracing the route of the River Lea from its source at Leagrave near Luton to where it meets the Thames in east London. As it follows the river, it undergoes a fascinating metamorphosis from rural pathway to urban trail. So whether you choose to walk for health, fresh air or views of wildlife and countryside, to visit friends, to explore heritage attractions, to escape or simply to explore your surroundings, the Lea Valley Walk offers it all. The Lea Valley, once London's market garden, is again recognised as a rich green lung running down the east side of the capital. This is a walk that can be enjoyed by everybody from the keen long- distance walker to those with young children or those new to taking exercise. Thanks to the many railway stations alongside the Park, between Ware and London, the Walk can be reached easily.
