Ultra training route of interest: Little London to Big Brother

I've been sitting here with the builders in so have not been able to go out much....except to pop to the shops.

In addition to the school work I have been catching up on, I have scoped out a really cool "Country to Capital" route which involves a train out into the sticks of deepest darkest Essex. I'm calling it Little London to Big Brother. Essentially it starts at the hamlet of Little London near Stocking Pelham on the Essex/Herts border not far from Stansted airport. it follows the route of the river Lea from source to confluence with the Thames at Leamouth with the finish being the Trinity house Wharf opposite the 02. This is only one of the possible routes as the Lea starts at Leagate near to Stevenage and 4 other locations.

I thought that with a nearby train station, the route of 35 miles could be completed as a training run and with a small camera, charting the route of the Lea Channel would be an interesting experience as well as good training. There is a really cool 50s diner at Trinity Wharf for a fat burger at the end.

I am planning on doing this in the next couple of months so please contact me via twitter or Facebook if you fancy a bimble!


  1. 2 further points of interest.....the lighthouse has a connection with Faraday. The big brother connection is where the first ever series of that irritating celeb-fest show took place, on Three-Mills Island, not far from Leamouth...where incidentally I went to 2 raves, once in 1991 and then in 1994.
