Walk Description:

Our walk from Potters Bar takes us along a series of country footpaths, via Brookmans Park and the picturesque village of Northaw, finishing at Hadley Wood overground station.  Just over half way round we can stop for a drink at The Two Brewers in Northaw, or bring your own and sit on the village green.  This is a very pleasant walk through fields and woodland over gently undulating terrain.

The walk ends at Hadley Wood where you can take the train back into London. If travelling by car see below.

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 Potters Bar Station ready to start at 10.30 am.

Approximate finish 3.00 pm

Travel by car: You are advised to park at Hadley Wood where there is free parking on the roads near the station.  You can then take the train for one stop to Potters Bar. Our walk will finish back at Hadley Wood where you can pick up your car.

Travel by train: There are regular trains to Potters Bar from London Kings Cross via Finsbury Park taking approximately 40 minutes

Distance: 10 miles approximately, walking on a mixture of firm paths and country footpaths. Bring paws for your poles as there are some sections along pavement/road.
