Sat 11 Feb: Berkhamsted to Hemel Hempstead; 7 miles

Oak trees on Berkhamsted Common

A quite hilly walk in Hertfordshire farmland and woodland. There will be a meal break after about four miles at the Plough in Potten End.

The walk, including the meal stop, should take around four and a half hours. You can download a map and elevation profile here.

You can also look at a map and aerial photograph side by side at the brilliant Where's the path? site, though the route is not marked on that.

Meet either at Berkhamsted station at 1009, or on the 0934 Tring train from platform 8* at Euston. This train can also be caught at Harrow & Wealdstone (0946, platform 5*) and Watford Junction (0955, platform 8*). If travelling by train, buy a cheap day return ticket to Berkhamsted, which is the farther station from London.

If you are planning to come on this walk, please click on this Doodle poll link to let me know - this will not be taken as a binding commitment, but does help by letting me know roughly how many people to expect (and where to expect them).  

For more information about this or any other PFA walk, phone me on 07904 286774, or email me at secretary@pfalondon.org
