A Big thank you to The West Herts Ramblers


We have received a very generous donation from The West Herts Ramblers walking group to assist us in the maintenance of the Hertfordshire Way. I have used this to replenish our dwindling stocks of roundels. I would like to thank Matthew Handford and all West Herts members for this generous gesture.

Route Status

Leg 13

Construction work on the A120 Little Hadham bypass continues to cause problems with footpath access in the area. Our route between Hadham Hall and Upwick Green remains closed. A recommended diversion is available by contacting us at the email address below. The current outlook for reopening the route is September 2021.

The following legs also have some closures with the recommended diversion posted by HCC Rights of Way Department.

Leg 2 

We are adding clarification to the existing way marked route, as described in the 3rd edition of our guidebook, at the point where it crosses the A507.

The track described in section 3 of page 29 was not there in 2020 so is unlikely to be there in the future. Cross the road, turn right and walk up the verge about 70 metres to reach a signpost. Go through the gap in the hedge into the field. You will not be able to see the far corner of the field.  If the path is not marked, it rarely is, aim for the most distance telegraph post then keep going downhill. The steps out of the field are to the right of the houses on your side of the village road.

The current lockdown restrictions mean that our leg wardens may be unable to check the condition of the route. If you see any problems with our route feel free to contact us.
