Much Hadham and Bakers’ End (springtime edition)
A circular walk of 11.5 miles from Much Hadham. The route takes in the glory of deeply rural East Herts, with long views of curvaeous countryside, rolling hills and sensuous textures.
The village of Much Hadham has an affulent history, represented by picturesque grand old buildings, nowadays decorated with expensive cars on driveways. There are few settlements to visit on this route. The route uses parts of the Greenwich Meridian Trail and the Harcamlow Way. Much of the route is on bridleway.
The route elevation ranges from 51m to 97m, with the steepest gradients being i) 39m uphill over 800m; and ii) 40m uphill over 1.52km and its corresponding downhill.
Bring packed lunch, lots of water and something to sit on. Lunch will be sat on the ground.
The route is largely exposed. Windproofs and sun block recommended.
Wear sturdy boots, especially if rain precedes the walk within two days. Expect mud.
Optional pub stop at the end of the walk.
