Description from

The Enfield Society

Distance (miles)10
Overview

'The walk quickly enters real countryside and encompasses some wide views. It penetrates some way into Hertfordshire until the old centre of Cheshunt is reached, then uses the New River to take the walker back into Greater London. The extensive grounds of Forty Hall, where there are refreshment opportunities, are visited and the route finally goes via Hillyfields Park back to Gordon Hill.'

Mike Biggs Inner London Ramblers

Distance (miles)86
Overview

'The Hertfordshire Chain Walk is an 86-mile walk that crosses the county of Hertfordshire from south to north, starting on the northern edge of London and finishing in Cambridgeshire. Unlike the other long distance paths that I've walked, which either follow a straightforward linear route from A to B or else form a large "circle", this path consists of 15 circular walks of between 4 and 9 miles in length that are linked together to form a "chain" – hence the name Chain Walk. In fact there is a quarter mile gap between Walk 7 and Walk 8, so the Hertfordshire Chain Walk is also unusual in that it is a long distance footpath with a hole in the middle!'

Distance (miles)10
Overview

'This signposted walk runs for ten miles through the parks and suburbs of north London as it follows (roughly) the course of Pymmes Brook, a tributary of the River Lea. This guide gives you an overview of the route; for a more detailed guide to the walk, contact Barnet Council for a free trail leaflet ...  As ever in London, there are excellent transport links to the start and finish points, and along the way. It's useful to pop a London street atlas in the rucksack.'
