This is a conservation area of land in the heart 💓 of East London! Starting @ Hackney Marshes (just off Homerton Road), the route is hard to describe as there are soo many sections even though it is basically a circle ⭕️! Most of it runs past a lovely canal with barges parked along side it but there is also much grassland, a horses paddock and picnic areas! There is a low bridge that you will have do bend down quite low to get under to avoid banging your head..... easy for the 5+ footers or smaller and more knee bending for the taller of our species 😂👣😂. All in all it is just about 9.10 k (approx 6 miles) it is a little challenge due to the varied inclines but that is art of its charm and beauty! Hope you get to enjoy it as much as I do!
