We always walk on Thursdays and sometimes on Sundays, though we have no Sunday walks planned at the moment. All walks start at 10am.

There are two walks to choose from on Thursdays – one at up to 5.5 miles and one at 6 or 7 miles.

Our members are welcome to join Sunday walks offered by the
Mid Herts Footpaths Society (details of these are sent to our members by email). When we are able to offer Sunday walks we offer them to Mid Herts members.

Our walks often end with a pub lunch, which is optional.






SHORT WALK: 4 miles from The Boot Public House, Sarratt WD3 6DL. If not staying for lunch, park round the green. Fairly flat via Chipperfield. Expl. 172. GR TQ 042 994. Walk leader is Bob.

LONG WALK: 6.5 miles from Woolmer Green village hall car park, off Bridge Road, SG3 6XA. Around Datchworth, undulating. Expl. 182. GR TL 252 187. Walk leader is  John. Lunch at the Red Lion, Great North Road, Woolmer Green SG3 6JP.


Both short and long walks will start at 10am from Ashridge. Meet at the NT Visitor Centre car park. Expl. 181. GR SP 969 131. The walks will be followed by our annual joint 'bring your own' picnic at 12.30pm when it is hoped as many members as possible both walkers and non-walkers, will come along.

Short walk: 4-4.5 miles. Walk leader is Alison.

Long walk: 6-6.5 miles. Walk leader is Mike.

You are very welcome to join up to three walks before deciding if you'd like to join the Society. Send an email to by the day before so we know you're coming.


We have very few rules for our walks:

  • Members must be over 18

  • ​Walkers must follow the Country Code, including keeping to marked footpaths and being considerate to those living in, working in and enjoying the countryside; leaving gates and property as we find them

  • Please wear appropriate footwear and clothes so you are safe and comfortable

  • We only allow registered assistance dogs on our walks

  • We ask members to arrive ten minutes before 10am as walks begin promptly
