2018 CPRE Hertfordshire Walk of the month 3 Eastwick, Gilston and Hunsdon

‘Countryside near Gilston threatened with development’ ‘Countryside near Gilston threatened with development’ Elizabeth Hamilton

The walk of just over 5½ miles starts and finishes in Eastwick, just off the A414 road 7 miles east of Hertford. The route climbs onto the high land to the north of the Stort valley, taking in Gilston Park and the remote Gilston church, the World War Two airfield at Hundson and Hunsdon village, before returning to Eastwick. It mostly crosses agricultural land and the paths can be muddy after wet weather. There is one stile.

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.
