Welcome to Lee Valley-The Gearagh

Welcome to Lee Valley-The Gearagh 0

The third part of our 'Welcome to Lee Valley' series is based in 'The Gearagh', which is a submerged glacial plain and nature reserve based in the Upper Lee Valley..

This wonderful area is the only ancient post glacial alluvial forest in Western Europe. The Gearagh gets it's name for 'An Gaoire' the wooden river.
