Gardens and countryside.  Meet free car park at Forty Hall. This walk starts from the grounds of a 17C mansion and soon visits the gardens designed by Edward Bowles of Myddelton House. The latter is named in honour of Sir Hugh Myddelton, an engineering genius who created the New River which is neither new nor a river – it is an aqueduct which was opened in 1613 to carry fresh water from Hertfordshire to London. The walk accompanies the New River as it is carried by a bridge over the M25. The remainder of the circuit passes through pasture and woodland before returning through the formal gardens of Forty Hall. Lunch – “King & Tinker”, Whitewebbs Lane. Public transport 191 or W10 buses to roundabout at Myddelton Avenue and then 10 minute walk up Forty Hill.

SCHEDULED WALKS

Our scheduled walks, usually take place on  Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday and Thursday.  Where possible, we try to arrange two short  and two long walks each week with the Wednesday and Thursday walks alternating between short and long. A figure of eight walk, where the lunch break will be at the original start point, allows for a short and long walk on the same day! Coach trips generally replace the local walks.

MORNING (and some AFTERNOON and EVENING) WALKS

As seen from the histogram above there are a lot of walks from 4 to 6 miles. These usually take place in the morning, but do include an occasional afternoon or evening walk, the latter usually take place in the summer with extra walks at Christmas, Easter, and Bank Holidays.

Typically there is a morning break of 10 min's during which, you can drink your own coffee or water or, if you are lucky, there maybe a cafe available.

DAY WALKS

These walks are often between 9 and 14 miles. There is usually one walk a year which is between 20 and 30 miles (Not shown in the histogram).

They normally start mid-morning (10:00 to 11:00) and finish between 15:30 and 17:00 depending on their length. The standard break for lunch is 45 minutes, but the duration will be set by the leader - could be between 20 and 60 minutes. There are normally "drink your own drinks" breaks of 10 minutes in the morning and the afternoon. Whereas morning walks tend to be more leisurely, all day walks often have a little more impetus to ensure the finish does not run into the early evening.

Frightening evening walk in Hainault Forest. Meet at a small free car park opposite Chigwell Row Infants School off the B171 or neighbouring streets.  This is a short walk for all; adults will be amused and children excited.  We  start with a wooden sculpture trail which features strange beasts and trolls.  This is a mature piece of work and undergrowth has conspired to partially hide some of the forty pieces which makes their  discovery even more entertaining.  A walk through Hainault  Forest reveals ancient trees which, in many respects are more grotesque  than the sculptures.  Bring a torch.
