I am a keen walker, always trying to find a new hidden green gem of wilderness in the city, as a way to escape from the noise and bustle and reconnect with nature and myself. I have been living in London for more than 12 years and I particularly love this walk by the river Lea, peaceful and full of beauty and history.
