Walks around Hertford Heath

Walking is an enjoyable way to keep fit and Hertford Heath is a beautiful area to explore.  It is one of a very few patches of surviving heathland in Hertfordshire which supports a special mix of wildlife.

Surrounded by nature reserves, the village provides the ideal base from where you can discover the delights of Balls Wood or Hobbyhorse Wood all expertly managed by the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.

A set of walks was produced by Clive Gillingham.  Six walks of between three and five miles start from various points around the village.  Four others are shorter, starting from one and a half miles and the routes are suitable for pushchairs.

All ten maps are available in PDF format and are freely available in the DOWNLOADS LIBRARY
