Please meet at the front entrance to Cheshunt railway station, ready to depart at 10:00. The morning walk is new route, flat and alongside lakes, the canal navigation, rivers and weirs with views of rural river life. We will stop for a drink and snack break by a weir (bring a flask or drink and any snack you'd like) and then we'll stop for lunch at about 12:45. For lunch, (uncertain of what Covid-19 restrictions will be in place at the end of January), I have booked both inside and outside (undercover) pub tables (overlooking the river) for you to buy lunch or you can bring a picnic to have by the river or there is a cafe beside the pub if you prefer. After lunch, we will walk beside the river, locks and lakes to Roydon. If this is enough for you, you can catch the train home from Roydon Station or you can join me for an extra short loop to explore a bit further before returning to Roydon to catch a train home.
Please note that there are two groups of 5 Spice members participating in this event - this group will walk with Linda (the walk leader) before lunch while the 2nd group 'follow in our footsteps at a socially safe distance'.
After lunch, Group 2 will walk with Linda as the advanced party while the 5 Spice members of Group 1 walk in their footsteps. Linda will keep both groups within her sight at all times. Limited to 5 walkers plus Linda to comply with Covid-19 rules.
Please bring drinking water, a Covid-19 protective mask, your picnic lunch or money for a pub lunch and any other drinks or snacks you may want. Please dress for the weather on the day (and bring a golfing umbrella if necessary!).
Please do not attend this walk if you have Covid-19 symptoms or have been exposed to the virus.
Your walk leader is Linda Richardson (07575 799909 for on the day), please ring or text if you are lost, late or can no longer attend.
