Overview

This is a pleasant walk through varied terrain of woodlands, countryside, and canal.  Starting from Apsley Rail Station, we walk in the south-westerly direction to Scatterdells Wood to Chipperfield Common, we then continue via Penman’s Green to Woodman's Wood and stop for a picnic lunch in (the Church) Bovingdon. After lunch, we head towards Sheethanger and Roughdown Common to join the canal to return back to Apsley Station. Some paths may be a little muddy.  Bring Picnic lunch.
