Epping to Hatfield

The gazebos of Ware (Lea Valley Walk)

In 2019, I created and walked a set of nine routes, collectively called Get out of London!. These emanate from Trafalgar Square in the eight compass directions (east being represented on each bank of the Thames, therefore nine routes).

It is now time to start linking them up, using existing named (and, one hopes, waymarked) routes. This is the second sector of the circumcardinal walk, from Epping to Hatfield.

NNE sector — Epping to Hatfield
(44.35km; 322m ascent)

From Epping, the Hadleigh-to-Stratford Legacy Walk is followed to Cheshunt, where the Lea Valley Walk is joined to Hatfield.

07: Epping to Broxbourne — 17.53km; 166m ascent
Streets to Bell Common, mainly paths and riverside path
08: Broxbourne to Hertford — 14.53km; 39m ascent
Riverside path; streets through Hertford
09: Hertford to Hatfield — 12.29km; 117m ascent
Streets and railbed

< Back to ENE — Southend-on-Sea to Epping
> Forward to NNW — Hatfield to Hemel Hempstead
