We've been walking our way through Hertfordshire countryside towards Chesham over the last few weeks and today we plan to fill in the space between Bovingdon and the Chess Valley.

Parking in The Hampden Arms car park again, this time we walk West rather than North out of … Continue reading Lacey Green
The weather was spectacular for late December. We parked up in the small car park on the B3306 St Ives road, just below Rosewall Hill, and walked down to the coastal footpath.
