Walk 2907 - A circular walk from Hemel Hempstead station

County/Area   Hertfordshire
AuthorDonald Morton
Length6.5 miles / 10.6 km
Ascent500 feet / 152 metres
Gradeeasy

thumbnail

Starting from Hemel Hempstead Station this is a walk which can be enjoyed without a car. The station is right on the edge of the town so virtually all the route is through the open country, much of it through Boxmoor Trust land, on the plateau of the Chilterns and along the Grand Union Canal. There are lots of reminders of the history of the area from 1594 through WWII. If you are lucky you may see a couple of rare farm breeds kept on Trust land and some interesting birds along the canal. Refreshment may be had every couple of miles or so. For a longer walk it can be combined with walk 1502.
