On 24th February 2008 we walked from near the Green Man roundabout in Leytonstone on a 6 mile walk that encompassed much of the area covered by the historic estate of Wanstead and is now known as Wanstead Parklands. The walk covered about 6 miles, but involved a lot of stopping and starting so that Paul could point out historical remnants of the lost estate - many hardly visible to the probably bored walkers!
