This is a LINEAR walk, approximately 11 miles in length. 

We start from Welwyn Garden City (WGC).  WGC was the second garden city in England (founded 1920) and one of the first new towns (designated 1948).  Heading out via Sherrardswood park (an ancient woodland), we quickly  pick up the disused railway line that ran from WGC to Luton and Dunstable (the Ayot Greenway).  Heading North via Ayot St Lawrence (and its fantastic medieval church), we meander through the glorious countryside of North Hertfordshire before we reach the pretty village of Old Knebworth.  We pass through the grounds of the famous Knebworth House before then heading East to (New) Knebworth, the pub and the railway station.

The walk will finish at Knebworth railway station at approximately 17:00.

For those returning to London, trains depart for Kings Cross (via Finsbury Park for easy underground connections).  at xx13 and xx43 (journey time 37 minutes to Kings Cross via Finsbury Park).  Those arriving by car can catch a southbound train back as far as WGC.
