A Walk in the Park - Winter on the Marshes
Join us for a 50th Anniversary winter walk on Walthamstow Marsh and enjoy the Walthamstow Nature Reserve, Coppermill Fields and Leyton Marsh, which are all part of this Green Flag award-winning site in the Lea Bridge area.
The reserve is one of the few remaining pieces of London’s once widespread river valley grasslands, and a space to treasure for many reasons!
There are plenty of paths to choose from when you explore by foot. Whilst exploring the area, look out for the blue plaque on the railway arch which commemorates the work of Sir Edwin Alliott Verdon Roe. It was on Walthamstow Marshes where he flew his first all-British triplane.
The meeting point for this walk is the Ice Centre car park off the Lea Bridge Road Leyton.
