New River Walk

New River Walk

N1 2HS

The New River Walk is not your average London green space, originally  part of the historic new river that brought water into London is now a stunning and tranquil oasis for wildlife. I spotted a long legged heron all poised and pouty just waiting for me to Pap him, so I obliged. As well as the birdsong and  chic weeping willows lightly brushing the water’s surface like fingertips , the river walk’s charm lies in the fact that its seldom busy.

Of course there are people out walking their dogs, yummy mummies pushing double buggies, even brave cyclists but there seems to be an air of being in the ‘NRW club’, The kind of club that only the people in that club actually know about. Summer sees the water covered in vivid green duckweed creating an Alice in wonderland fairytale feel as you stroll along a series of delightful bridges and spot the ducklings floating past the soothing waterfall.
