New River Loop, Gentleman's Row, Enfield
The New River has been considerably altered over the years. The wooden aqueducts were replaced with clay-banked canals, and several of the longer loops were straightened out. Notable among these were the stretch through Turnford, which had originally flowed in a long meander through Cheshunt Park, and the still-surviving New River Loop that flows through Enfield Town, although the riverís main route now bypasses this. From Clissold Park in Stoke Newington, the river is now underground, emerging only occasionally to form water-features in parks.

The New River was built between 1608 and 1613 to take drinking water from local springs to Londoners. Four hundred years later, the river still fulfils its original purpose and its banks have become a popular walk running the entire length of the Borough.
