Walks And Walking – Hertfordshire Walks Buntingford Walking Route
As we all enjoy our traditional British summer of wind and rain I was trawling through my trusty 1001 Walks In Britain, published by the AA, reminiscing over past walks in better weather. Buntingford is a delightful Hertfordshire town and was a walking route I completed after walking Deacon Hill earlier in the morning. This was an easy Hertfordshire walk that I completed in just over 2 hours and covering 8 miles of country tracks, lanes and village roads.
You can find the original walking route online here.
I parked the car in the main Buntingford car park in the High Street crossing over to Church Street passed the Fox and Duck pub where I then walked left in to Wyddial Road turning right across the River Rib ford in to The Causeway. I continued my walk along the lane turning left at the public bridleway signpost in to St Bartholomew’s churchyard where I then walked down the green lane to the road turning right uphill. As the road bent I walked left at the bridleway signpost across the wide grassy path between fields to the road where I continued my walk to Wyddial parish churchyard walking along the road turning right at the bend by the footpath sign keeping the hedge on my right hand side.
At the end of the field I walked left over the footbridge and walked straight ahead keeping the hedge on my right hand side and then my left hand side to the access road by the farm where I then walked right to Beauchamp’s keeping right by the hedge and then left on to a wide grassy path to a track on the hill where I then walked right passed Beauchamp’s Wood where I then walked down to the valley turning left to climb again up the next hill. I then walked right next to the concrete pile down to the metalled track on my left hand side to the road crossing over to Alswick Hall where I then walked passed the pond and farm buildings to Owles Hall.
At Owles Hall I then walked right on to the lane down to cross the valley at Haley Hill Ditch where I then walked up and back towards Buntingford passing the Sainsbury depot on my left hand side turning right at the end of Owles Lane where I then joined the Roman Ermine Street to then turn left passed the Railway pub in to Aspenden Road to Luynes Rise.As the walk then came to its end I walked right at the footpath signpost following the River Rib and back to the High Street and the car park.
