Ascent - 120 feet / 36 metres

Time - 1 hours 10 minutes

Grade - easy

I suggested this Hertfordshire walk to Lou Johnson to celebrate the arrival of his first grandchild. He thought it might nice to publish. So here it is. Our youngest grandchild was between three and four when he first managed the longer version, but he did have the incentive of keeping up with older cousins. There is plenty to keep a child interested, and a variety of refreshment at the end. Between the green and the Apostles Pond it is popular at weekends but otherwise quiet. And on a warm summer weekend afternoon what better way to finish than watching cricket on the village green, played here since the mid 1800s. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).

Please maintain social distancing - keep at least 2 metres away from other walkers.
