Rural Enfield by Ian Russell

Enfield Chase was once a vast royal forest stretching north from the City of London.  It has steadily been enclosed, converted to farmland, parkland or urbanised.  Hear how Enfield Council’s Watercourses team are implementing a combination of natural flood management and rewilding measures to improve wildlife habitats and the visitor experience.
