This circular walk of a little over 4 miles starts and finishes in Tring, just off the A41 in the west of the county.

The route takes in the designed landscape of grassland and woodland in Tring Park, then reaches the highest point in Hertfordshire at 803 feet (244 metres) above sea level, before descending the wooded Chilterns scarp to return to Tring.

All of the route is within the Chilterns Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Stop development on Green Belt land and prevent de-designation of Green Belt in Kings Langley.

There is need for truly affordable housing but we are being forced into planning for far more houses than are actually needed.

The Government’s proposals for calculating local housing need are based on the widely discredited premise that simply building more houses will bring prices down.

The risk is that we end up with planning permissions that more than meet actual need, as opposed to opportunistic demand. This will result in the Green Belt and countryside being lost forever, without solving the problem of providing affordable housing.

This circular walk of about 5¼ miles starts and finishes in Barkway, which is situated on the B1368 3½ miles south of Royston in the north of the county.

The route takes in the village of Reed with its Saxon church and includes a short detour to enjoy the fine views from the chalk escarpment over the flat land to the north.

There is another short detour to visit the site of a long-abandoned moated settlement, before returning across the fields to Barkway.
