An easy walk through south east Hertfordshire.
14 km (8.7 miles)
Landranger 167, Explorer 174
1 out of 10.
|Features||This is a fairly easy walk with the advantage of being close to London, making it ideally suited for a short winter’s day. Depending on the time of year, there are a couple of sections where the footpath is not obvious across expansive (recently harvested / fallow) fields; however there are distinctive landmarks to guide you. For lunch at Hunsdon, you have the choice of the more upmarket Fox and Hounds or the more traditional Crown Inn. Shortly after lunch you pass by Hunsdon Airfield, a former Second World War RAF base - now used for light aircraft.|
