The walk starts and finishes at point A on the map, in the Cole Green Way car park between Cole Green and Letty Green, just south of the A414 between Welwyn Garden City and Hertford. The turning for the car park and picnic area is close to the Cowper Arms pub and adjacent to the former railway bridge.

Our May walk of just under 5¼ miles explores Green Belt countryside in East Hertfordshire and Welwyn Hatfield Districts, to the east of Welwyn Garden City. The proposed Birchall Garden Suburb on the eastern edge of Welwyn GC and spreading out towards Panshanger Lane and the A414 would eventually comprise 2,550 new homes in what is now Green Belt.

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.

Our July walk of just under 6¾ miles, created by Elizabeth Hamilton explores Green Belt countryside in North Hertfordshire District to the north of Stevenage. There is an optional detour into the Stevenage Borough Council area to see more of Forster Country, the open countryside between Graveley and the edge of Stevenage.

The walk described starts and finishes in the village of Weston, runs along part of the Hertfordshire Way passing through the deserted mediaeval village of Chesfield, and also visits Graveley.

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.

The History of CPRE Hertfordshire

CPRE Hertfordshire celebrates its 90th Anniversary this year (2018). It was founded following a conference on regional planning held in the county in November 1928.

CPRE nationally had been set up two years earlier at a time when loss of countryside to the rapid growth of urban areas had become a national issue.
