Open Country looks at Lea Valley

Lee Valley Park marketing manager Lucy Hose has sent out a letter saying that last year “over four million visitors came to see what we have to offer”. It’s an impressive figure.

This Saturday morning Open Country on Radio 4  looks at how parts of the of the valley are being transformed for the Olympics which will bring many more in 2012.

The programme is at 6.07am and repeated the following Thursday at 3pm. Or listen online.

I see that the Radio Times uses the ‘Lea’ spelling. This is slowly being adopted by the media although the official title of the park covering the last 26 miles is ‘Lee Valley’. Further north near Luton they accept ‘Lea’ as in ‘Upper Lea Valley’ which pioneered the ‘Lea Valley Walk’. I might start using it myself as in the headline here.
