Last Thursday evening was not sunny in Broxbourne. Indeed dusk seemed to come two hours early.
So I was surprised to find the ‘mobile’ cafe by the water in Mill Lane still open.
The cafe has been renewed as a semi-permanent structure and is now open daily from 9am to dusk. There is even some indoor seating.
Before setting out on a three mile walk to Cheshunt I was able to enjoy a large mug of tea and a homemade blackberry cake.
Checking my phone I found that there was free wi-fi.
The Old Mill Retreat Cafe, as it is now called, is a surprise improvement on the Lea Valley Walk.
