This is Metropolitan OPEN land

The ponytrekking around the former golf course costs from £20 per hour, per person


The campsite, where vehicles are allowed to drive on to the land, and the old tees have been left to corrode

      We are campaigning for this M.O.L. to be an organic golf course rather than a permanent campsite. Can you join us on 1st Sept for our walk to talk more about this?

      The Lee Valley Regional Park Authority. Waltham Forest Council gave permission to them.
