Sunday Walk: St Margaret's Circular

19.5 km (12.2 mi) Difficulty 3/10
Follow ancient tracks and green lanes through fields and woods in rolling East Herts countryside. There are stretches along the Ash and Lea rivers. The final stretch leads along the Lea Navigation back to St. Margarets. We will be using shortcut 1 to do the shorter version with lunch in Wareside.
Trains Take the 9:57 Cambridge North train from Liverpool St. Change at Tottenham Hale onto the 10:25 Hertford East train (platform 11) arriving St Margarets at 10:51.
Buy a return to St. Margarets (Herts).
Return trains at xx:17 and xx:47 changing at Tottenham Hale for Liverpool St.
Lunch: Two choices in Wareside:
The White Horse, (01920 464 433). Open 12.00-22.00.
Chequers Inn (01920 467 010). 12.00-14:00
Note that Wareside is 8 miles into the walk. You might want to bring drinkies and snackies to keep you going. (A glance at the map suggests one could, if necessary, cheat to arrive earlier - something Mr Tiger would never EVER do).
The Jolly Fisherman 8 Station Road, St. Margarets.
The Oak 36 High Street, Stanstead Abbotts.
Walk directions here.
Take shortcut 1. This cuts out the outer loop of the walk.

St Margaret’s Station is within the Oyster Card Zones,
which could be cheaper than buying tickets.
Not within the Freedom Pass Zones.
