Join Colne Valley Park walk and experience countryside
Organisers hope to tell walkers about impact of HS2 on the natural beauty spot
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.
