CPRE Hertfordshire campaigns

80% of Hertfordshire is countryside, much of it in the Green Belt, protecting us from coalescence with London and built areas from coalescence with each other. CPRE Hertfordshire has been standing up for the Hertfordshire countryside for over 80 years.

Stevenage - Future Town, Future Transport Consultation

The Right Homes in the Right Places?  Gresley Way, Stevenage

This year our walks will explore more of Hertfordshire’s beautiful countryside and diverse landscapes.


"This 5 mile 'figure of eight' walk takes in several woods and fields in the southwest of the county in the Three Rivers and Watford Districts.
The walk also includes the Grand Union Canal towpath and the Nature Reserve in Cassiobury Park. A shorter walk is possible by doing either one, but not both, of the loops in the 'figure of eight'.  Start and finish are at Whippendell Woods car park on Grove Mill Lane, north of Watford. The walk can also be accessed using public transportation: take the Metropolitan Underground Line to its terminus at Watford Station and then walk through Cassiobury Park.  Although CPRE did this walk in February and it was lovely then, optimal timing may be late April / early May when the woods should be carpeted in bluebells."

Take part in the Star Count 2019

CPRE is holding a Star Count in February, and you can take part by looking up at the night sky and recording how many stars you can see in Orion.

You can do this from anywhere in England. The best time to do the count is from 2-9 February, when the moon is smallest, so the skies are darkest!

The results will help to create a new national map to show how light pollution affects everybody’s views of the night sky. Read more>
