pub walk

A circular pub walk from the Cricketers in Sarratt, Hertfordshire. The Cricketers overlooks the green in the village of Sarratt and is a great place to sit with a pint on a sunny day, watching the world roll by. The walking route takes in the surrounding classic Chiltern Hills, with peaceful rolling hills and valleys, the pretty River Chess, water meadows and plenty of wildlife to enjoy. The route includes several climbs and descents throughout. The paths cross fields and woodlands and so can be quite muddy in winter and after periods of rain so robust footwear is recommended (plus a change of shoes for the pub!). Several of the fields are likely to be holding cattle or horses so take care with dogs. You will need to negotiate several gates/kissing gates plus 3 stiles (all of which have open fencing at the side that most dogs should be able to negotiate). Approximate time 2 to 2.5 hours.

Great route for famies with plenty of grazing animals. Two things though, one there's no space like a bench or table to sit down for a picnic along the route. The other is that there's literally no access to River Chess which was a disappointment. Other than these very pleasant
