Let's make the best out of the weekend and take a walk along the river Lea.Depending on the group we have a few possible endings of the walk (so if you feel you don't fancy walking for 12-13 miles, there is an option to take train back after 8.5)
Meeting point & directions :
We'll meet at Liverpool street train station at 10am to catch the 10:28 train to Cheshunt.If anyone finds it easier to meet us at Cheshunt station, please be there at 11am sharp.(pls let me know before!!) As Cheshunt is just outside the Oyster Pre-pay area, it would be good to take advantage of the group tickets (4 for the price of 2 people).
The length of this walk is 8.5 to Tottenham Hale plus possibly 1.5, 2.5 or 3.5 miles along the canal towards Olympic Park.
We'll head towards Enfield Lock,walking along the canal for about 4.5 miles before a possible stop in a pub for refreshments near Ponders End. We'll then continue towards Tottenham hale,where we can have some warm food in the lovely Ferry Boat Inn pub. (Last time the food was great there) We will continue form there and depending on the weather and on how everyone feels we can finish in Clapton (rail - 10miles altogether), Hacney Wick (overground - 12 miles altogether) or Bromley by Bow (underground - 13miles altogether).
If the weather turns bad, it is possible to catch the train from Tottenham Hale back to Liverpool street or take the Victoria line if that is more convenient.
What to bring:
- GOOD WALKING SHOES!-especially for the "first time walkers" as 10 miles in high heels is a bad idea:-)
- some snacks & water - there's also a couple of options to get refreshments in a pub.
- money for drinks&food in the pub for lunch.
- waterproof/raincoat/umbrella:-) depending on the weather forecast (I'll confirm that closer to the day)
- definitely a camera if you have one
-- good mood & sociable attitude
