Earlier in the day Graham and I walk through the forest to Connaught Waters and the Warren Pond as a Lost Walk.
It’s been threatening to rain all day but I manage to get out on the bike and escape anything more a few light drops. I cycle to the lake in the Roding water meadows and return towards Debden where I spot the Charlie Moules bridge. I’ve never explored over the bridge before and so this time I do. There is an amazing patchwork of fields and woods here backing up to the M11 motorway.
There is a connection also to Grange Farm and I get to step on the Grange Farm bridge that crosses the motorway. Here I encounter a pretty girl on her bike who is thrilled that we have matching helmets!
I make two circles of the water meadows, from Buckhurst Hill to Debden, and am excited to have found a new place to explore. Oh! And part of the route is the London Loop.
