The Hidden River Discovery Trail is an activity for families and small groups, including adults and children from age 7 upwards, set in North East London. The trail was conceived as part of the Hidden River Festival September 2013, celebrating 400 years of the New River, a man-made conduit which slopes gradually from Hertfordshire to London and still supplies drinking water to the capital, even today! It includes a map and clue trail, numerous fascinating facts and insights about the New River, and a wildlife spotting game called 'Wingo'!
