Our September walk of just under 6 miles explores Green Belt countryside in North Hertfordshire District to the east of Luton. 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.

Throughout 2018, our walk each month will feature the corresponding site in our "Countryside Under Threat" calendar.  Our aim is to highlight these sites and raise their profile in aid of local campaigns to prevent their inappropriate development. There is a short optional detour into the area proposed in the emerging North Hertfordshire Local Plan for a development of 2,100 houses. Agricultural land would be lost and precious urban fringe countryside, so important for health and well-being, would disappear.
