Lea Valley Walk
The Lea Valley Walk is a route which runs, as its name makes clear, along the valley of the River Lea, from its source at Leagrave near Luton to Limehouse Basin in east London. The first half flits to and fro around the infant river: the second half is almost entirely along the towpath of the River Lee Navigation.
I had walked a fair bit of the route over the years, but in 2008 plan to complete it in order from the source to the Thames.
The route was opened in 1993, but has been modified between Hatfield and Hertford because of access issues - some of which I encountered when I visited that section in 2004.
Official literature gives the length as 80 kilometres, but from maps I estimate it to be about 86 km (taking the new route between Hatfield and Welwyn).
