Description

Details

Trent Country Park lies in 413 acres of rolling meadows, enchanting brooks, exquisite lakes, ancient woodland, and imposing historical sites. It forms part of London's Green Belt and being a country park it provides a natural, rural and tranquil atmosphere right on the outskirts of London on the borders of Enfield. Rarity and distinctiveness lend the landscape an unusual beauty.

The ghost of Geoffrey De Mandeville, Earl of Sussex and Hertfordshire and Constable of the Tower of London has been haunting the Moat since the 12th Century. He was arrested for treason and hid his treasure down a very deep well which he guards. Many have tried to find the well but so far none have succeeded
