This is an all day walk of around 11 miles (17 km). We walk south from Enfield, through Winchmore Hill, Palmers Green, Wood Green, Hornsey, Finsbury Park, Stoke Newington, Canonbury, Islington, Angel finishing at New River Head close to Sadlers Wells theatre.
New walkers are always welcome to join us for all, or part, of the route.
Our walk starts at the ‘Crown and Horsehoes’ pub on the banks of the original New River Loop in Enfield Town. The pub is situated adjacent to one of the many cast iron bridges built for the NR Company at Bilston Ironworks near Wolverhampton in 1841.
We break for lunch in Wood Green at around 1pm at Avenue Gardens by Alexandra Palace station where there are seats, local shops & a pub. Short breaks are taken, in the morning at Deadmans Bridge on Green Lanes, Palmers Green & in the afternoon at Clissold House café, in Clissold Park at Stoke Newington.
I have led these free New River walks for over 25 years.
Along the way, I provide a bit of history about this 400+ year old watercourse and explain why and how it was originally built.
Please contact me for more information and for a more detailed walk & timings schedule.
