Stonebridge Stride Out
During this weeks walk, we will discover what Tottenham Marshes has to offer.
Lee Valley Regional Park Authority took over management of the area in 1972 and since then the nature has been top priority.
The marshes are a diverse area of grassland, scrub and waterways which are an oasis for nature in the urban sprawl of London. It has some history and the walk leaders will tell you about historic events and what the site was used for in the past.
When you visit this beautiful area you can expect many wildlife species across miles of paths including Kingfishers, Field Voles..
Winter on the marshes can be a magical time and it will be a relaxing walk to brighten up your weekend.
