Leisurely 10 miles / 16.1 km
A chance to catch a true piece of English eccentricity - from Stanstead Mountfitchet, we pass the mill and explore the countryside to the west, passing through Patmore Heath and finish at the village of Braughing (pronounced Braffing). We will be in time to witness people pushing decorated garden transport around the village, in an unusual tradition which began in 1964. For more information on the event, please see https://www.braughingwheelbarrowrace.com/
Please note 9 miles is the distance to Braughing, where there is a 2-hourly bus to Ware. You can walk an extra mile to the White Hart in Puckeridge (hourly busses to Ware, 2-hrly to Bishops Stortford). Cost for the Ware bus for a single is about £4.50
