  • Hitchin Circular. 4/5/18.
    amib, May-18

    This was a 14.5 mile walk (the shortened version!) around this walker's home town in North Herts. Setting out from the station, it was through very familiar terrain prior to reaching the 'countryside' at the old Priory Park. Then, on through the village of Charlton, Bessemer's birthplace, and along field boundaries and green lanes to the elevated village of Great Offley. This version of the walk goes under the busy A505. After lunch, the walker decided to opt for the shorter version of this walk and, so, is more farm tracks and field margins over to Little Offley, and New Welbury, with its Yeshiva. Then, over to Pirton, with its double Motte and Bailey, prior to crossing more fields to reach the delightful nature reserve at Oughtonhead. From there, it's on to the old town centre, often featured in television ads and 'Humans'/'Doc Martin', before the finale in front of St Mary's church. A decent enough walk, albeit this walker might be a little 'neutral' about such familiar terrain.
