This 3.4 mile circular walk takes in some of the rolling open countryside and woodland in the middle of the county.  The walk is centred on rural Symondshyde for which the submitted Welwyn Hatfield District Local Plan proposes a new settlement of 1130 homes.  The local campaign group Save Symondshyde and CPRE Herts continue to campaign against this damaging proposal, which would remove a swathe of rural countryside from the Green Belt.  The walk starts and finishes in Coleman Green, southeast of Wheathampstead.

2018 Rural Living Awards Presented

We all love to get out and enjoy the Hertfordshire countryside. CPRE Hertfordshire has as its two prime objectives, the celebration and protection of Hertfordshire’s countryside and the rural population living there. The Rural Living Awards are all about celebrating rural communities, particularly individuals, groups and businesses that sustain or improve living in a rural community or sustain or improve the rural environment.

Our October walk is at Bygrave Common in North Hertfordshire, to the northeast of Baldock.  The walk is easily accessible by public transport as it starts and finishes at Baldock railway station.  Bygrave Common is an area of the Green Belt for which the submitted North Hertfordshire Local Plan proposes 2,800 new homes along with a retail centre, school, doctors surgery and other infrastructure.  If developed, it would destroy the landscape and its wildlife habitats, remove high grade agricultural land from production, cause coalescence of Lower Bygrave with Baldock, and nearly double the physical footprint of Baldock.

Ten Things and One Year at CPRE

I joined CPRE in September 2017 and have thoroughly enjoyed a year of getting to know everyone involved, understanding the policy world in which we operate, and learning about how we influence it.  All my thanks to everyone who has given me their time and attention, and particularly those many CPRE volunteers who have given me such a warm welcome in their local areas.
