It’s May Day Bank Holiday…I always enjoy celebrating International Workers’ Day and to do so this year we drive to a part of Hertfordshire where no worker can afford to buy a house. Around here a house will set you back a cool £1M. According to Rightmove-
…an overall average price of £955,534 was more expensive than nearby Welwyn (£663,654), Woolmer Green (£370,944) and Welwyn Garden City (£388,557).
We start by the River Mimram, a typical Chiltern chalk stream and the water is crystal clear. The sun is deliriously warm, the hills are gentle and the walking easy, particularly compared to Sunday’s exertions. We climb slowly to Tewin (the name always makes me chuckle) before turning south as we reach Burnham Green. Some great views of the Digswell Viaduct from the top of the hill before we’re back by the River Mimram and seemingly in no time, we’ve reached the car. A brief 6.2mile walk and we’re back home before 11am…and in spite of International Workers’ Day we both have work to finish before tomorrow’s return.
