Walk Description:

Our walk starts in Berkhamsted, passing by the 11th century earthworks of Berkhamsted Castle.  We then head up onto Northchurch Common, a superb combination of open grassland and thick woodland with fine views over the Bulborne valley.  The return is a gentler section along the Grand Union Canal.

Our longer Explorer WALX are open to all, exploring beautiful areas in and around London. Routes are planned with breaks and the opportunity for refreshments but this isn't just a ramble; we'll encourage the good posture and motivation to push yourself as we do in all our WALX.

If you'd like to benefit from using Nordic walking poles, we advise you attend a Learn to Nordic WALX workshop. Walkers without poles or with trekking poles are very welcome.

Monthly Payment clients £10; Pre-paid Credit clients £16 - price adjusted at payment.


Time: Meet at the entrance to Berkhamsted Station, ready to start at 10.30 am

Approximate finish 2.00 pm
