The Hicca Way: Arlesey-Henlow-Langford

Event Details

Covid Secure Events - getting back outdoors

All of our groups are now able to offer events. In England and Wales, up to 30 people (including the organiser) may attend each event. In Scotland a maximum of 15 people, from a maximum of 5 households may attend. Individual events may have a lower limit than this at the discretion of the local groups.

You will only be permitted to attend a GOC event if you have registered in advance via the website. Every person attending an event must register individually. A record of participants at all events will be kept, and will be shared with NHS Track and Trace if requested.

GOC discourages the sharing of lifts to reach events.

Any event may need to be cancelled at short notice in order to comply with local lockdown regulations, or where an event leader is required to self-isolate. Always check the website for any last minute changes in the morning before travelling to an event.

When attending an event, please ensure that you bring a supply of hand sanitizer and a face covering along with your usual food and walking equipment.

If you, or someone in your household, has Covid-19 symptoms you should self-isolate in line with government guidelines, and must not take part in GOC events. Symptoms include a high temperature, a new continuous cough and the loss, or a change to your sense of smell or taste.

Are you ‘clinically vulnerable’? If you (or someone you live with) are at higher risk of getting seriously ill from coronavirus, you should take extra care to minimise contact with others from outside your household.Taking part in a GOC activity may put you and those around you at higher risk. It may not be the right decision at this time. Remember – everyone over 70, and those with certain underlying health conditions are considered to be ‘clinically vulnerable’

General information

A walk along part of the ancient Hicca Way which follows the River Hiz. We will also venture into the arable prairies of south Beds following a route which is effectively flat but not dull. The river offers some lovely scenery, tranquil places and the farms, open spaces and big skies. There will also be a Georgian mansion now a well-known health spa, a C15 church with connections to the Pilgrim Fathers, and an ancient bridge.

Terrain / Difficulty

Essentially entirely flat so an easy walk. There are no stiles but one bridge with a couple of large steps. Mostly hard-surfaced paths/tracks but also paths across and round fields and along the river: there is the potential for mud. It is possible for you to shorten the walk as it a figure of 8 route.

Approximate Distance

10 miles
