Lea Valley Walk

Lea Valley logo

The Lea Valley Walk follows the route along the Lee Navigation towpath, from Waltham Abbey to the Thames at Limehouse Basin.


  • Waltham Abbey
  • King George V Reservoir
  • Springfield Park
  • Bow Creek Ecology Park
  • Canary Wharf
  • Old Ford Lock
  • Enfield Lock
  • Tottenham Marshes


Sections 1-4 are well marked by signs featuring a swan symbol. Sections beyond that are not marked but work on those signs are in progress.

Three Mills to Limehouse Basin, are part of Legible London, but there is very little signage on the Meridian Alternative from Three Mills to East India Dock.
