I had promised a mud free walk: it didn’t quite work out that way as the early part through the Flamstead village dog-walking routes were quite churned up after the recent snow and rain, but soon we left the mud behind and headed up-hill across grass to cross the M1 and then into Redbourne. We walked along the high street, and turned west at the end to pick up the ‘Nickey Line'; a disused railway track that runs from Harpenden to Hemel Hempstead.
We finished the walk along the Flamstead streets, not wanting to risk another muddy path. The rain started just as we were heading off in the cars, so satisfying!
