A point-to-point walk of 9.73 miles in suburbia (Metroland!) and urban countryside. Includes Cassiobury Park and Whippendell Wood (as mentioned once in EastEnders by Johnny and Nancy Carter, who said they used to play there!), disused railway (The Ebury Way), nature reserves, woodlands, Grand Union Canal and Croxley Green. One stile. There is one noticeable gradient at the beginning of the walk.
Terrain includes pavement, footpath, bridleway, track and woodland.
Wear sturdy boots. Bring packed lunch and something to sit on.
Optional pub stop at end of walk, assuming we can find something suitable in Watford. Failing that, if we want to walk further to Bushey (0.75 miles), there is a nice urban pub that'll do us nicely.
Return to start point is by public transport.
