Wednesday 18 May 2022 and Monday 23 May 2022
Grand Union Canal #6 : Rickmansworth to Kings Langley
8.5 miles / 13.5 km

Fully booked

Just when we thought we had seen the best the canal had to offer on our last walk, we discovered we have yet another beautiful section to enjoy. We pass any number of well maintained allotments, Common Moor, Long Valley Woods, several locks and, of course, all the lovely boats. Our picnic lunch will be enjoyed on tables in Cassiobury Park where we will be surrounded by families and dogs enjoying the park and its offerings. Then we have a golf course to our left to enjoy and the River Gade to our right as we make our way to Kings Langley to end another enjoyable canalside walk.

Monday 6 June 2022 and Wednesday 15 June 2022
Grand Union Canal #7 : Kings Langley to Berkhamsted
8 miles / 13 km

Book on 25 May, 9 a.m.- 5 p.m.

As we continue on this section of the canal it has a slightly more suburban feel to it with a variety of housing and allotments alongside. We pass by the seemingly peaceful Boxmoor and Dew Green commons and will lunch by a quiet lock. This section has a bit more noise than some we have enjoyed as the railway and A road are always within earshot. That doesn’t take away from the peace of the canal though and as we come near the end we also have the River Bulbourne off to our left. One more section of our canal journey will be completed.

    Wednesday 1 June 2022 and Monday 20 June 2022
    Newport to Audley End Station via Saffron Walden
    8 miles / 13 km

    Book on 18 May, 9 a.m – 5 p.m.

    This walk takes you through the gently rolling countryside of northwest Essex or Uttlesford as the well-to-do area prefers to be known. Starting at Newport Station we are soon surrounded by open countryside and fields, the route heads north for 8 km until we reach the medieval market town of Saffron Walden, passing Thieve’s Corner and Burnt Woman’s Plantation, where women were once executed for charges of witchcraft. After lunch we loop round the Audley End Estate, centred on the sprawling Jacobean mansion of Audley End, before making a short walk along the busy B1383 to Audley End Station in the village of Wendens Ambo.
