LOVE WALK VISIT MUDCHUTE FARM

22 May 2019

In the last month, activity carers at Love Walk have run two trips to Mudchute Farm as the trip was so popular. 

The 32-acre farm was established in the 1970s on derelict land on the Isle of Dogs. Today it is a hugely popular community site, with many animals including rare-breed pigs, llamas, sheep, goats, horses and a variety of birds.  It is a wonderful site that makes you forget you are in the heart of East London!

Residents who joined the trips commented on how peaceful it was there, and how glad they were that they’d come on the excursion.
