If you are in the center of Ware it is really recommended to take a nce walk along the River Lea which is famous for the gazeboz overlooking the area. If you are lucky you might see a houseboat pass through the lock.

Had a lovely day with family cruising slowly up the river to Ware. A couple of locks made it very interesting. Lots of wildlife to see.
