It can't possibly follow the Lea from Stortford to Harlow... The Stort 
maybe, but not the Lea... The Lea Valley is the 1 as far as Hoddesdon 
and then the 61 as far as Hertford where the 61 heads off along the Cole 
Green Way.

The 1 leaves the Lea somewhere near Rye house and heads over the Harlow 
although that part of the route doesn't seem to be fixed yet - my guess 
is that the plan is to follow the Stort from where it leaves the Lea 
over towards Harlow.

Presumably the 11 diverges from 1 somewhere and goes to Stansted rather 
than Cambridge?
