2019 Late Winter Walk - Whippendell Woods, Harrocks Wood, the Grand Union Canal and Cassiobury Park

The River Gade The River Gade Eliza Hermann

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."
