Sorry Kat, the answer is no as far as Potterells walks. However, I suggest you look at the "Health Walks" web site, I do know that there is a walk every Saturday run by the Potters Bar Health Walk Group.
Hope that helps
Alex

The Potters Bar Health Walk Group meet at Potters Bar Station on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10.30am. The weekday walks last for about an hour. The Saturday walks are of about 1 1/2 - 2 hours duration.

I'd also add that the Potters Bar Health Walks do vary in difficulty:

There has been further publicity surrounding Diabetes 2 in National paper today. Further evidence that exercise,including walking can help significantly.

"Get off your backside! It's madness for the NHS to spend millions fighting type 2 diabetes when the simple cure is exercise, says DR MICHAEL MOSLEY, who reversed HIS own diabetes
  • Being overweight dramatically increases chances of developing type 2 diabetes
  • 68 per cent of men and 58 per cent of women in UK fall into overweight category
  • More than 8 per cent of people over 20 years old are already diabetic in the UK
  • A third are pre-diabetic well on the way to developing the full-blown disease"
Potterells Health Walks can help, so come along on a Thursday, 10.30am at the Brookmans Pub in the village  and its FREE!!
