We have just completed The North Mymms Way for the third time. Itís a 10-mile circular following, as closely as possible, the parish boundary using footpaths, bridlepaths, byways and lanes. It includes woodland walks, hill climbs, sheltered footpaths, open fields, a lake and quiet lanes. It takes between four and five hours.  There is one short flooded stretch along Foxes Lane. It is possible to get through by clinging to branches at the side or walking through the hedgerow.

Walk 22: The North Mymms Way
We mapped the walk three years ago and are hoping that it could, one day, be adopted as an official way-marked circular by Hertfordshire County Council; Iíve written to them to suggest it. Below are some pictures from the walk.

Update June 2016: A warning. The part of this walk that goes down Foxes Lane is impassable at times due to heavy flooding. The local authority is aware of the problem and will get round to fixing it, but, as of June 2016, the path can be totally waterlogged. We did manage to get through by clinging to branches on the side of the path and using a good walking stick to balance, but it would be difficult for many. As an alterative, when you come out of the Welham Green industrial estate please cross the road, take Holloways Lane down to Bulls Lane, turn left and rejoin the route at the junction with the far end of Foxes Lane.
