Many thanks to Liz and Les for organising the walk and for the interesting history and quotes from John Bunyan!!
The walker has the rare opportunity to discover ancient historical sites dating back to Neolithic times and to observe a wonderful array of wildlife - flowers, birds and mammals.
Shetland's amazing geology has brought the isles Geopark status, and walking is by far the best way of appreciating the extraordinary landscape.
Weather rarely stops keen walkers and sometimes the poorest days create the most spectacular sky effects.
There are common threads to every walk, and yet each one is unique, with endless untold stories of endurance and adventure, locked within each stretch of coastline or hill, each ancient site and crumbling ruin.
Walkers do not have to attend all of our walks but can pick and choose which walks they have time to go on. Future walks programme may include going out of County or even London walks.
We are keen to receive details of Walker's favourite walks and any other suggestions which would make our walks more enjoyable We also have an arrangement with Potters Bar U3A Walking Group where we are able to go on each other's walks without the need to join their U3A as associate members.
Mainly on level ground, but with a small number of gentle gradients; and mostly firm, but as sections can at times be wet and muddy, strong boots are recommended.
Parts of the route are a little 'off the beaten track', so access to an Ordnance Survey map might be helpful - Explorer OL22.
We are sorry to say that we only accept walkers who enjoy social company, convivial chat, fresh air and healthy, if not overstraining exercise. Hertfordshire is a wonderful county to explore and there are numerous local walking groups to suit all types of walkers.
