AT BROXBOURNE, FAMOUS FOR ITS FISHING, ON THE LEA

The large village of Broxbourne stands near the river Lea in one of the most delightful parts of Hertfordshire and very near the Essex border. We reach it from Cheshunt by way of Wormley. The church is built on rising ground above the mill stream, and dates from the early years of the fifteenth century. It was restored in 1857. The Lea hereabouts has been long famous for its fishing and is a constant resort of the angler from London. Fish, or no fish, the stream hereabouts is a very pleasant place for a "Contemplative Man's Recreation."
