Enjoy a picturesque riverside stroll at River Lee Navigation, which stretches all the way from rural Hertfordshire to the heart of London. This natural river has been improved, or straightened, over the years to shorten the route for traders and boat users. Pick a section of the 80 km (50 mi) route and enjoy an uninterrupted walk as you make your way through open green spaces and nature reserves. On pleasant days, you might even spot people out on the water partaking in water sports. You’ll be surrounded by an abundance of plant and animal life, so keep your eyes peeled.

Awesome canal route to cheshunt
It starts from the Thames at Bow and weaves it's way through Lea Valley to Hertford or Bishop Stortford if you take the river Stort at Rye House. Popular with trip boats, cyclists, runners, rowers, walkers, drinkers, photographers, etc. Loads of history in the entire length. Well worth a visit. Check out local attractions before setting out.
