This walk uses roads and public footpaths, bridleways and byways in a 7 mile circular journey. It begins and ends at the Village Hall and visits the Duke's Head in Hatfield Broad Oak.

This is not a short walk, it crosses open country, and surfaces can be uneven and rutted. Clothing should be appropriate to these conditions, and, as always, to the weather. Walking boots with good ankle support are strongly recommended. Take care when walking along the stretch of road between Hellman's Cross and Marsh Farm Lane, especially between Helman's Cottage and Black Hall where the verge is particularly narrow.

The video shows views along this walk. Please note that some of the public footpaths are blazed through the middle of cornfields. They will become very difficult to cross, at least temporarily, after the harvest when the stubble is ploughed up. Walking conditions do vary over time and features may have become unsafe (e.g. a broken stile) and these should be avoided. In such cases it is worth taking a look around to see if a detour has been provided that can be used in safety.

Note: the image can be enlarged by clicking on the symbol in the top right hand corner, and the scale expanded or shrunk by use of the sliding scale on the left (or of a mouse wheel). Of the maps in the dropdown menu "More maps", the OpenStreetMap and OpenCycleMap are particularly useful.
