Stanstead Abbotts and the River Ash Valley
Stanstead Abbotts is a village in the Lea Valley about 2 miles downstream from Ware. This walk explores the higher land to the north of the village and also drops down into the valley of the river Ash, a tributary of the Lea.
For much of the walk there are far-reaching views in all directions. This is a circular walk of just over 5½ miles. For those not wanting to walk this far, a shorter return route is available.
St Margarets station, on the railway line to and from Hertford East, is a short distance from the start of this walk, making this an ideal walk to access using public transportation.
