Sat 14 July: Broxbourne to St Margarets; 7 miles

Elbow LaneA gently hilly walk through woodland and farmland in Hertfordshire, including a couple of miles along the old Roman Ermine Street. There will be a meal break after about four miles at the Silver Fox in Hertford Heath.

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 at Broxbourne station at 1015, or on the 0943 Cambridge train from platform 7* at Liverpool Street. This train can also be boarded at Hackney Downs (0950, platform 2) and Seven Sisters (0957, platform 2).  Buy a cheap day return ticket to St Margarets, which is the farther station from London.

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