Activity

7 mile circular walk around the charming countryside and villages of Radlett and Shenley. Starting at Radlett and having a lovely walk around Radlett looking at luxurious houses and gardens and then out into the scenic countryside to walk off the wages of the week spent indoors. Radlett is situated on the ancient Watling Street, one of the oldest trackways in Britain. Various archaeological finds of Mesolithic and Neolithic flints provide evidence that the Radlett area was inhabited in the Stone Age; the land was densely wooded and remained so until the Middle Ages. We will then walk to Shenley through the countryside and stop in the White Horse pub for lunch. Then walk back to the start. Martina and her 6 year old son are avid geocachers, and will be incorporating caches with the walk.

Refreshments

Bring snacks and drinks but we are planning for a pub lunch in Shenley and another pub back at the start in Radlett, The Red Lion in Watling Street.
