Route Outline

Much Hadham is a long village spreading down the B1004 which runs from Ware to Bishops Stortford. The Hertfordshire Way includes a detour to visit it and it does indeed have a wonderful variety of domestic architecture as well as a small museum (reopened March 2009 - Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, Bank Holiday Mondays) itself in an interesting old house.
