The river Ingrebourne flows gently past our ‘village’

River Ingrebourne, Park Hill and Sunrise Estate Hornchurch

For generations the children of our estate have played in or near the river. They had their fishing nets with a jam jar for the Mino they caught. Then they’d race home to Mum proud to show what they’d caught.

The banks are a haven for wild life that thrives among nettles and wild flowers; butterflies and moths; as well as bumble bees that nest underground. Foxes, rooks and magpies all vie for space with small mammals, which are abundant along the river banks.
