Photos of Stage 9
Dobbs Weir to High Beach (11 miles)
The stage starts on the Lea Valley Walk at Dobbs Weir. The route is flat for the first 8 miles following the Lea Valley Walk through Broxbourne and Waltham Abbey to Enfield Lock. We then join the London Loop for over a mile through Stewardstone and on the climb to Epping Forest. At the top we divert north through Lippitts Hill and onto High Beach Green in the middle of the forest. With some of the photos below you can click on them to view a larger image.
