Our walking programme is published twice a year in March and September. It can be downloaded from the Group Walks finder on the Ramblers website here
The group usually walks twice a week with Saturday walks of around 10 miles which include a stop at a pub for lunch, where food can often be ordered before the start. Mid-week half day morning walks of about 5 miles will also finish near a pub for lunch. Walks are at a moderate pace of about 2.5 miles per hour. There is usually a mid-morning break for a drink or snack.
Well behaved dogs are permitted, subject to the specific approval of the walk leader
Most walks are in the surrounding counrtyside of North West Essex and East Herts, but some can be further afield. Walk leaders will have surveyed the route, which will be predominately on listed footpaths and bridleways.
We may also share walks with other local footpath associations.
Walking farther afield
Walking weekends away for three days (normally Friday to Sunday) are also arranged about twice a year in spring and autumn. Members may be asked to arrange their own accomodation or this may be at an HF property. For walking breaks farther away eg the Lake District breaks can be up to a week. More recently there have also been holidays abroad on Menorca and Majorca. Details of past walks and holidays are in the 6 monthly newsletter.
