Lookout for these signs along the route
The Hertfordshire Way
Is a 194 mile circular route along public rights-of-way
within the County of Hertfordshire. Our new guidebook
divides the route into 16 sections, or 'legs', each
making up a comfortable day's walk of about 12 miles
(shortest is 11, longest 15). Wherever possible we have
chosen places with some public transport access for
the end points of each leg. However, anyone willing
to spend a bit of time studying the maps and timetables,
or able to use two cars, can choose different starting
and finishing points. The route has been chosen to pass
through a variety of Hertfordshire scenery, mostly in
open countryside but also passing through some of our
more interesting and attractive villages. Hertford and
St Albans, as the County Town and main historic centre
respectively, are the only large towns on the route.
Although originally inspired by the Ramblers
Association, the Friends of The Hertfordshire Way is an
autonomous group. It is now financed mainly by fund-raising
activities of its membership, from its very modest subscriptions,
from donations and from the sale of the guidebook.
The Friends of The Hertfordshire Way has
a walks programme. We meet once a month on Mondays (to avoid
clashes with weekend and mid-week walks programmes of other
groups such as the regional Ramblers Association sections).
Non-members are very welcome to join these walks at no cost.
