Furneux Pelham Circular
Introduction to Walk 2306

Photo from the walk - Furneux Pelham Circular

County/Area - Hertfordshire

Author - Donald Morton

Length - 7.0 miles / 11.4 km

Ascent - 400 feet / 121 metres

Time - 3 hours 50 minutes

Grade - easy/mod

This walk takes you through some of the best arable land in Hertfordshire. The fields are large but there are sufficient hedgerows remaining to provide variety. The villages and hamlets which are visited tend to be straggly, but it would be difficult to find villages with more thatched cottages and 17th and 18th century houses than Furneux Pelham, Little Hormead and Patient End. The church at Little Hormead is a delight both for itself and the view across the fields. A GPS File is available for download (see walk description).
