Bridge over a drain in Hilly Fields Park, near Enfield
A bridge carrying a path over a drainage channel in Hilly Fields Park, on the outer fringe of north London. The channel drains into Turkey Brook which flows in the foreground.

The path crossing the bridge is shared by pedestrians and cyclists. It is on the route of the London LOOP long distance footpath and also forms part of National Cycle Network route 12.
Turkey Brook

Turkey Brook rises near the Fir and Pond Woods Local Nature Reserve near Potters Bar and flows generally east to meet the Lee Navigation just south of Enfield Lock.

London Outer Orbital Path (LOOP)

Starting at the Thames at Erith and finishing on the opposite north bank at Coldharbour, the Loop (London Outer Orbital Path) is 150 miles long, passing through numerous woods, commons and parks and on waterside paths alongside the Grand Union Canal and London rivers such as the Colne, Crane, Cray, Darent and Ingrebourne.

The National Cycle Network

The National Cycle Network is a network of cycle routes. It was created by the charity Sustrans LinkExternal link (Sustainable Transport), aided by a National Lottery grant.

Many routes aim to minimise contact with motor traffic, though 70% of them are on roads. In some cases the NCN uses pedestrian routes, disused railways, minor roads, canal towpaths, or traffic-calmed routes in towns and cities.

National Cycle Network Route 12

The National Cycle Network is Sustrans' primary initiative set up in 1995, providing up to 12,600 miles of walking and cycle routes across the country.

When complete,route 12 will run from Enfield Lock in north London to Spalding via Stevenage, St Neots and Peterborough. An extension from Spalding to Grimsby is possible.
