50 Walks in Hertfordshire

50 Walks in Hertfordshire

by: Martin Andrew
As one of England's smallest counties at a mere 630 square miles, Hertfordshire packs in a tremendous variety of scenery. The chalk hills in the west and north and the boulder clay landscape of the east and centre are deeply cut by many rivers and streams. Through the chalk they sparkle and dash amid lush water meadows, the valley sides climbing up rounded bluffs to plateaux and wooded hills. Dry valleys, many of great beauty, abound in the chalk. Country houses abound in their superb parks and many are encountered on these walks such as Brocket Park, North Mymms, Knebworth, Kingswalden Bury and Rothamsted.

This guide explores some of the best countryside in Hertfordshire. It includes 50 themed walks of between 2 and 10 miles, each with fascinating background reading. There are clear, easy-to-follow route descriptions and full colour detailed sketch maps for every walk. Each walk chapter is prefaced by a practical information panel and then a section with interesting information on what to look out for during the walk. Details of places to eat and drink are provided, including guidance for dog owners on where to walk and dog-friendly establishments. The book also includes numerous stunning colour photographs of locations visited along the walks.
