The Gade Valley on a misty late May morning in Hertfordshire and we’re up and out walking before the rest of the world is out of bed! For as far as Frithsden we’re retracing our steps from various other walks and, to tell the truth, had we turned and headed back at Potten End, it would have been a good walk. Instead I’d added an extra loop out as far as Gadebridge (edge of Hemel Hempsted) and a return along the Gade. For the most part this loop wound its way across the back of various gardens and through heavily nettled paths. A route that could do with some re-working before trying again! Not a particularly memorable 7.2 miles.
