2018 CPRE Hertfordshire Walk of the month 4 aston and Hooks Cross

‘Countryside near Aston and Hooks cross threatened with development’ ‘Countryside near Aston and Hooks cross threatened with development’ Eliza Herman

The April site is situated in the Green Belt between Bragbury End and Hooks Cross to the southeast of Stevenage, where a new development of 550 homes is proposed. The walk starts and finishes in the village of Aston, and if timed for late April or early May should feature bluebells in Astonbury Woods.

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.

 This 4.2 mile circular walk was devised by CPRE Herts' Trustee Eliza Hermann.



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.
