Route Outline

Close to the county border between Hertfordshire and Cambridgeshire, Therfield Heath has a reasonable height advantage over the surrounding area, which results in some very nice panoramic views, particularly over to a somewhat flat South Cambridgeshire. The early part of this walk crosses the Heath to check out this scenery before heading off to explore some equally attractive, rural and remote Hertfordshire countryside.
