Countryside

This is a circular walk of approximately 3 miles (4.8 km). There are three stiles and the climb up Widbury Hill is steep.

Sandridge is one of the oldest villages in Hertfordshire, dating back to 796 AD. The fields around the village were the scene of the Second Battle of St Albans in 1461. This is a circular walk of approximately four miles (6.5km).

This 7.7km (4 3/4 miles) walk - with an option to take a shorter, 6.3km (4 miles) route - starts in Hitchin town centre and quickly reaches countryside which was recently under threat of development, though now reprieved.

When did you last see the Milky Way, that pale band which appears to arch across the night sky, formed from many billions of stars which make up our own galaxy?

In 2007 CPRE commissioned researchers to create a highly detailed new approach to defining tranquillity. By using these findings to create a national tranquillity map, it is possible to assess the likelihood of finding tranquillity in any given locality.
