This mostly hidden river runs west to east through Haringey from Queen’s Wood to Markfield Park.

On this occasion we will take the route from east to west to soak up the historical remnants on the Tottenham High Road eastern side of the walk following the river for 3 miles from Markfield Park to Lordship Rec.

Meet 10am at Markfield Park Café

‘A River - Runs Through It’ Project is working with local people to raise awareness of our river, its history, some of the crafts & industries fed from its banks.
Twisted Stocking Theatre Company has been exploring how the Moselle has influenced the growth of Haringey’s communities with 8 Haringey schools, 5 Friends of Parks Groups & Day Care Centres.
