EXPLORE TWO COUNTRY PARKS - WHITEWEBBS PARK and FORTY HALL ESTATE (23.02.19)

Explore and Enjoy London! Get out and about with Ken's Events and see new parts of London and its surrounds in the company of great friends. Join us for a day out involving a leisurely hike through two of London's great country parks. Meet outside Gordon Hill Station- This is a circular walk starting and finishing for those who cannot stay after the walk at Gordon Hill Station (Zone 5) . Make sure you bring some appropriate outdoor walking shoes as it will be muddy in places. Please note that the first toilet stop will be at Whitewebbs House after about 45 minutes and the next one at Forty Hall about 1 hour after Whitewebbs House. On this occasion we will have a Pub break in the middle of the walk at the Toby Carvery in Whitewebbs House for 1 hour (Roast dinner for approximately £7). Forty Hall and WhiteWebbs were originally part of Enfield Chase and were used by Henry IV for hunting. During the walk we will visit Whitewebbs House which was built in 1791. We will then walk into the Forty Hall Estate and see Forty Hall which has just been restored to its former glory and we may have some time to enter and explore the local museum. Set in its own Estate, with walled garden, formal and informal gardens, lakes, lawns, and meadows, Forty Hall is Grade 1 listed and important to architectural English history as a fine example on the cusp between the medieval to modern style. Built by former Lord Mayor of London, Sir Nicholas Rainton in 1632 the Hall stands on the edge of London and is important to understanding the growth of the Capital City and of the life and times of the merchant classes. The Hall has been changed and reworked by a number of owners that lived there, including the Meyers, Wolstenholmes and Parker Bowles, however many architectural features remain from the seventeenth, eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Today both the Forty Hall and Whitewebbs parks are used mainly for leisure activities, there is a well maintained golf course at WhiteWebbs, a fishing lake, organic farm and adventure playground. It is also a favourite spot for locals to enjoy a picnic, cycle run or walk. Every year Enfield Council hold a 3k and 10k cross country event at Forty Hall for local residents. PLAN B - Walking events should always be fun and have a Plan B - If the weather is wet, walking in the rain is no fun.
