Civil Engineers’ Club walk: Hatch End to Elstree on the London Loop, London

About this event

The walk is linear - 7 miles in the morning and 3 miles after lunch in the afternoon, finishing at Elstree & Borehamwood Station where there are regular trains to King’s Cross.

This section of the London Loop follows the green belt on the fringe of greater London, crossing the Hertfordshire border several times. It goes through picturesque woodland and pastures and is easy walking on mostly level ground with a few longish slopes and some field edge, farmland and woodland path walking.

The highlights of this walk are Grim’s Ditch (the mansion of W S Gilbert of Gilbert & Sullivan fame), Bentley Priory with its World War II connections and the Roman Watling Street.

There are many stiles and kissing gates. The sections more suitable for the less mobile include Bentley Priory Open Space, Grove Fields and Aldenham Country Park. There is a café and public toilets at Aldenham Country Park as well as pubs along the way.
