Lee Valley: Britain’s most popular walk

For a second weekend The Times has been promoting walking.

It is interesting to read the version on its website where the Lee Valley walk is currently the favourite beating other beautiful parts of the country.

The paper’s Lee Valley example is the very short walk from the towpath at Amwell Walkway Bridge to Great Amwell which was included in the first edition of the Lea Valley Walk guide when diversions were included.

Great Amwell is a lovely village with the New River running running throught it. There is even an island.

The current edition still suggests a diversion although not  a circular walk as in The Times. I know some walkers don’t like missing even a mile of the main path on a long distance route.

Next month teas will probably be available again on Sunday afternoons at the church.
