THE COLNE Val­ley Park Com­mu­nity In­ter­est Com­pany (CIC) will be walk­ing around the park to raise aware­ness of some of the views it is known for.

Or­gan­is­ers will also hope to im­press upon peo­ple the impact HS2 will have upon the char­ac­ter of the land­scape, which they say is best un­der­stood by ob­serv­ing the cur­rent vis­tas.

Ste­wart Pomeroy, man­ag­ing agent for the Colne Val­ley Park CIC, said he was hop­ing for a good turnout to show peo­ple, who may not know about this area, the many in­ter­est­ing spots and in­for­ma­tion in the park.

He added he would like to show peo­ple ‘its fan­tas­tic wildlife and its his­tory, how it sur­vives on the edge of Lon­don, how it’s been in­flu­enced and how it’s been fan­tas­tic for lo­cal res­i­dents and peo­ple of west Lon­don.”

A num­ber of landown­ers have opened up their land to the pub­lic for the first time for this event and the CIC say it will be a unique op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the coun­try­side from a dif­fer­ent view point.

Mr Pomeroy said a stretch of the river bank near Den­ham and a route around one of the locks around Hare­field will be open to the pub­lic.

This event will take place on Sun­day start­ing from the Vis­i­tor Cen­tre at Den­ham Coun­try Park – meet at 11.45am for a noon start.

The walk route will be a 7.6-mile cir­cu­lar walk, with a shorter five-mile op­tion. Chil­dren un­der 16 years are wel­come but must be ac­com­pa­nied by a re­spon­si­ble adult.
