Circular from Great Gaddesden to Little Gaddessden

Introduction to Walk 2795

Region - Chilterns

County/Area - Hertfordshire

Author - Donald Morton

Length - 7.5 miles / 12.2 km

Ascent - 770 feet / 233 metres

Grade - easy/mod

This walk explores some of the hamlets of the Chilterns which, although close to Hemel Hempstead retain their remoteness in their quiet locations. It goes over the typical chalk uplands of the Gade valley and up to the beechwoods of the National Trust Ashridge estate. It passes charming 17th century cottages, a vineyard, a Buddhist Temple and long established churches. The country truly merits its AONB designation. A GPX File is available for download (see walk description).
