60 – Ware to Hertford and back 7.5 miles – 19th April

In short: a really terrific walk from the AA book of Hertfordshire walks, not simply the reverse of the walk we did a year ago – no 12 – but something a little different. A fair amount of walking in the two towns but plenty of country views, towpath walking and all very little disturbed […]

59 – Orford coastal path and Sudbourne Hall 6.2 miles – 16th April

In short: lovely varied walk with atmospheric estuary views, rural landscapes and huge Suffolk skies. Bone dry ground but good walking boots definitely worth it as the ground is quite rutted and uneven. Plenty of parking – some free, some paid – public toilets available in the village; rather over-rated village cafe, super coffee, poor […]

58 – Darlands Lake and Totteridge – another variation 5.3 miles – 6th April

In short:  A lovely walk on a gorgeous day – an old favourite plus a new path. Usual lovely cafe with toilets at the end; free on street parking. Not too muddy today so ordinary boots/strong trainers are fine. 2 hrs walking + 30 mins pitstop. For various reasons a shortish local walk is required today […]

57 – Mill Hill and Totteridge loop 4.9 miles – 29th March

In short: a reprise of walk no 20 but with slightly better weather conditions. Mostly firm underfoot but with a couple of very squelchy exceptions so worth wearing proper waterproof boots. No public toilets en route – albeit we believe there are some accessible at the Belmont Children’s Farm at the start. Lovely pub lunch […]

56 – Berkhamsted Waterways 8.5 miles – 22nd March

In short: no doubt this is a delightful walk on a half decent day – unfortunately we only had brief breaks in the rain all morning so could only appreciate it’s lovely vistas in snippets peering from under our cap and waterproofs! It’s a good leg stretcher though and combines towpaths, a hill and rural […]
