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.

Our October walk is at Bygrave Common in North Hertfordshire, to the northeast of Baldock.  The walk is easily accessible by public transport as it starts and finishes at Baldock railway station.  Bygrave Common is an area of the Green Belt for which the submitted North Hertfordshire Local Plan proposes 2,800 new homes along with a retail centre, school, doctors surgery and other infrastructure.  If developed, it would destroy the landscape and its wildlife habitats, remove high grade agricultural land from production, cause coalescence of Lower Bygrave with Baldock, and nearly double the physical footprint of Baldock.

The walk described starts and finishes in Breachwood Green, goes north-east through King’s Walden to reach Ley Green, then heads south-west to Tea Green, on the edge of the area proposed for housing.
