Up Up and Away

Up Up and Away

Join us for this leisurely yet scenic walk around the farmland which is along and surrounds the beautiful River Lee Country Park. Starting from the car park at Lee Valley Park Farms you will drop down into the River Lee Country Park at Fishers Green and head north to an area not often explored. Following the footpath towards Nazeing this walk will link back to Clayton Hill and you will climb a winding path to gain a different view with a new perspective.

This time of year there is still plenty of wildlife to see and there will be plenty of young birds in the hedgerows to look out for.

On reaching the top of the hill you will then take a slow decent back towards the farm and explore a different aspect of the Lee Valley Park.
