Welcome to the Enfield Poetry Walk One an exciting event created by the artist/poet Giovanna Iorio using poems written and recorded by Enfield’s Poets.

By following the Echoes route (see below) you can follow a route with 17 audio spots that play a recording of a poem.

Each poem is about or relevant to a particular place in Enfield Town.
