This linear route (approximately 9.5 miles in length) starts from Watford (Metropolitan Line Underground station). We pass through the leafy suburbs of Watford and the pleasant Cassiobury Park before picking up the Grand Union Canal, which we follow in a northerly direction towards The Grove (a posh hotel that recently hosted the 70th birthday bash of NATO).

Passing over the M25, we head through the Hertfordshire countryside towards the quaint village of Sarratt where we stop for a drink at a local pub.  After refreshments, we follow the Chiltern Way as it winds its way down to the Chess Valley.  We follow the River Chess for sadly only a short period of time before heading uphill to the desirable commuter village of Chorleywood, approaching via Chorleywood Common.
