The Berkhamsted Walk

More Details: The Small Print

  • Please wear suitable clothing and footwear and be prepared for changes in weather.
  • When signing in, you will be given a Walk Card, a map and route directions.
  • The routes are waymarked, and there will be check points with refreshments.
  • At the end of your walk, please return to Kitchener’s Field so that we know you are not lost. If you are picked up at a checkpoint or at another point during the walk, please let us know by telling a checkpoint or calling the number on your walk instructions before going home, so that we know you are not lost.
  • We ask that you take personal responsibility for your safety, including when crossing roads and stiles, and for arriving back at Kitchener’s Field at the end of your walk.
  • Follow the Countryside Code: KEEP DOGS ON LEADS, especially near sheep, horses and cows, and in woods. Dogs love pursuing the scent of deer in Ashridge woods, so keep your dog on a lead. Fido can easily get lost!
  • If you are walking on your own, please be aware that in some quiet areas/woods other walkers may be out of hearing/sight.
  • Do not stray off footpaths and keep off planted fields. Grass is a crop!
  • Close gates behind you. They may be keeping animals in, and deer out.
  • No litter please, "Leave only footprints" in the countryside.
  • Give yourself time to enjoy the Walk. 2-3 miles an hour is a typical walking speed. Leave early if you are doing the Challenge Walk, and don't delay en-route.
  • Please join us for refreshments at the end of the walk.
  • The final checkpoint, at Kitchener’s Field, will close at 6.00pm.
