14:00 – Walk in Cassiobury Park and Whippendell Wood

The walk will start at 14:00 from the front of the Essex Arms (assuming lunch is served promptly). It will be about 3.7 miles, through Cassiobury Park, around Whippendell Wood, along the canal and back through the park. It’s an easy walk, mostly on good surfaces, but there may be a few muddy sections. If you don’t want lunch, just turn up at the Essex Arms at 14:00.

Directions and parking

The Essex Arms is beside the roundabout on Langley Way, on the right coming from the traffic lights on Hempstead Road (A411). We are all welcome to use the Essex Arms car park, but you must enter your car registration in the pub. Alternatively, many of the local roads have parking restrictions 10:30 – 14:30 except in summer, but these do not apply on Cassiobury Drive after turning right at the roundabout in front of the pub.
