'With its beautiful parks and open spaces, Hackney is a great place to walk ... '



'Short to medium walks, nearly always on footpaths away from busy roads – by rivers, canals, parks and woods.  There are usually places of interest to point out en route. The pace is also very gentle. There are always break–off points for persons who do not do the whole walk.'



'The Hackney Society works to preserve Hackney's unique heritage and make the area a better place in which to live and work. The Society was formed in 1967 to involve and support local people in the conservation and regeneration of Hackney's built environment and public spaces.'
