Albury Circular
Introduction to Walk 2411

Photo from the walk - Albury Circular

County/Area - Hertfordshire

Author - Donald Morton

Length - 7.5 miles / 12.2 km

Ascent - 500 feet / 152 metres

Grade - easy/mod

This is a gentle ramble over the fertile upland plateau of East Hertfordshire - all within 2 miles of the Essex border - with wide extensive views. It is a country where the scattered settlements are based on the existence of a large hall belonging to a predominant family, and even now there are large areas with no made roads. Instead the trackways still exist in their green state so virtually all this walk is on paths wide enough to allow two people to walk comfortably side by side.
