See below for details from Northaw and Cuffley Parish Council

Parish Council summer walks are organised and led by a walk leader. We offer you the opportunity to participate in two short evening footpath walks and one longer morning walk this summer. Fred Allgood, who is the Parish Footpath Warden, will be the walk leader.

If you would like to participate in any of the walks, it would be helpful to the organisers if you could let the Parish Office know, either by telephone 01707 875825 or email: deputy.clerk@northawcuffleypc.org.uk

 The walks, which involve some steepish gradients, are as follows:

 Tuesday June 25th 6.45pm for 7pm start in Northaw.

Park/start at The Two Brewers – then we will be going south, using the Hook Lane footpath leading to extensive bridleway/footpaths/waymarked tracks in Fir and Pond Woods, then return to the pub via Hook Lane (about 3 miles).

 Wednesday 3rd July 6.45pm for 7pm start in Cuffley.

Park/start at the King George V Playing Fields, then walking along the Hertfordshire Way footpath, up The Dell and onto the Ridgeway, then via Hanyards and Bradgate to walk the Red Path in Homewood, before progressing via Hill Rise to finish at The Plough, or walk on to KGV to pick up the car (about 3 miles).

 Sunday 14th July 10am for 10.15am start.

Free parking at Sopers Road car park, then walking along field paths and farm tracks, to cross Burnt Farm Ride and onto Wood Green Farm, exiting on Silver St, then via the Poyndon Farm path to Goffs Lane, returning via Jones Rd and the Dell View farm road to eventually retrace our steps to the Sopers Rd car park (about 5 miles).

A Few Tips

Wear walking shoes or boots with a decent sole as the footpaths, though generally good, may have some rougher, eroded areas

If you mind stingers and the odd bramble wear long trousers, which should offer protection

 • Evening walks invariably attract midges, so if you are susceptible to bites please use an insect repellent or wear long sleeves and long trousers

Bring some water to ensure you do not dehydrate, particularly if the weather is very warm

Although none of the footpaths we shall encounter are particularly difficult to walk, walking poles or sticks can be useful, particularly if the weather has been poor and the footpaths are muddy.
