2018 CPRE Hertfordshire Walk of the month 2 Whitwell

This 3.5 mile circular walk starts and finishes at the free public car park at Whitwell Recreation Ground on Bradway, just east of the B651 and was devised by CPRE Herts' Trustee Eliza Hermann.

The February site is in Whitwell. Whitwell is a historic village in St Paul's Walden parish in rural North Hertfordshire. Proposal SP2 in the district's emerging local plan would result in 41 new homes being built on open countryside land to the west of the village.

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.




If you walk this route and have any feedback/photos you would like to share with us, we would be delighted to hear from you.
