Hertfordshire Way between Chipperfield and Bovingdon
Introduction to Walk 1815

Photo from the walk - Hertfordshire Way between Chipperfield and Bovingdon

County/Area - Hertfordshire

Author - Donald Morton

Length - 7.5 miles / 12.2 km

Ascent - 500 feet / 152 metres

Time - 4 hours 20 minutes

Grade - easy/mod

This Hertfordshire walk links two ancient Hertfordshire villages which despite their proximity to Hemel Hempstead still thrive as independent communities. They lie on the dip slope of the Chilterns and the walk is a pleasant ramble through woods and open farm land where many of the fields are still small and bounded by attractive hedgerows. The outward course of the walk is on the Hertfordshire Way and the return by an alternative route which creates a figure of eight: so each loop could be used as a separate walk. In fact, with refreshment available in both villages, each loop makes an ideal summer evening stroll, or provides enjoyable exercise on shorter winter afternoons. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).
