It has been a lovely sunny day on the towpath.
However, I have a report that the towpath closure between Ponders End and Picketts Lock was not lifted for the Bank holiday weekend as advertised.
There are free photocopied maps in racks at either end of the closure showing the diversion route.
The well-signed diversion is via Meridian Way, Lea Valley leisure Complex and Picketts Lock Lane.
The ‘community relations’ hotline is 0800 021 7890.
More news later I hope.
