Saturday, 6 October 2018 (Group: Herts Weekend Walkers)
Start time 14:30
8 miles / 12.9 km
(Estimated finish time: 18:00)
This is a circular walk to mark the fifth anniversary of the formation of Herts Weekend Walkers.
We walk through the famous park surrounding Knebworth House, an imposing Tudor Gothic style mansion which has been used numerous times as a film set. We exit the park via one of the county’s newest footpaths (opened in 2017).
We then cross open countryside, skirting around woodlands, encountering the occasional single-track lane, and seeing very few houses and farms, until we reach the outskirts of Codicote with its church of St Giles, which dates from the early 1100s AD.
At the end of the walk there will be an opportunity for a drink at The Lytton Arms, which was completely refurbished and re-opened under new management earlier this year.
Starting point of the walk: meet outside The Lytton Arms, Park Lane, Old Knebworth, SG3 6QB.
