On 23 April members of the Friends of Wanstead Parklands will lead a free walk around Wanstead Park.

"The main purpose of this event will be to explain the history and construction of the lake system in the park, which dates in its present form from the 18th century," said walk leader Richard Arnopp.

The two-mile stroll will take a detour through Chalet Wood, where the park's annual display of bluebells should be approaching its best.

The walk will start at 11am from the entrance on Blake Hall Road.

For anyone who cannot make this date, the Friends of Epping Forest are holding a similar walk a few days earlier, on 20 April, led by naturalist Tricia Moxey with help from Richard.
