As these walks are planned up to 6 months in advance and there could be late changes it is suggested that walkers contact firstname.lastname@example.org closer to the scheduled date.
All walks start at 10am unless otherwise stated and generally finished by 4pm. Most of the walks are within Hertfordshire but from time to time we "stray" into neighbouring counties.
All are welcome on the walks (but no dogs please) and we would recommend that you join The Friends. Children and vulnerable adults must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
Please remember whenever you have to leave your car in a residential area park it with due consideration for those who live there.
These walks are in addition to our regular monthly walks and only take place in the summer months. Please contact us for details on how to take part.

A circular walk of just over 10 miles. The morning session will be via Therfield, Chapel Green and Dane End with a lunch break at The Silver Ball Cafe, Reed. We will return to Royston via a section of The Hertfordshire Way. Bring binoculars, as on a clear day we will get good views over Cambridge and beyond.
The Heath Cafe Bar,
Winter Solstice walk. There will be a walk this month, location dependent on where the Christmas lunch will be organised. An email will be sent nearer the date concerning arrangements for this walk.
