OverviewThis is a walk of two halves, so if the weather becomes inclement or if you just want to do a short walk you can bale out half way through at Finsbury Park.
When you reach the River Lea during the second leg, there are a number of options to traverse the wetlands (see the excellent map on the walk instructions. However, if you would prefer to give the wetlands a miss, you may simply walk up the River Lea towpath. There's a cafe just past Markfield Park (Markfield Park Cafe) which serves teas and cakes if you take this option.
From there, it's just over 1km to Tottenham Hale station, so about a 15 minute walk to finish off with.
