River Lea Wanderings

On Sunday afternoon, we decided to go on a little walk along the upper Lea/Lee (no-one seems to be able to decide how it’s spelled). It’s a waterway we’ve never visited by boat, although we hope to one day. We drove to Ware, walked to Rye House along the river, then took the train to Broxbourne, had a little wander there (including locating the rowing club!), then caught the train back to Ware. It was a glorious day, and the river looked beautiful. It’s an area we’d seriously consider moving to should life take us away from Cambridge.

  1. I think it is the River Lea and the River Lee Navigation, not sure why.

    It’s River Lea and Lee Navigation for the record

    It’s exactly as the two previous guys say, and the reason for differrent spellings is simply to help differentiate between the two fuurther south. (Used to live at Edmonton as a young kid , Pickets Lock was nearest place on the Lee to home; spent many a happy hour by the lock, and also in the railway signalbox of the same name!)
