This is a great walk if you enjoy wide open views across rolling countryside and walking along wooded byways. The walk starts and finishes at the Hermit of Redcoats pub in Titmore Green and follows footpaths and bridleways to the south. Don’t be put off by the proximity of the A1(M), you can’t see it and the noise isn’t bothersome.

Staff at the Hermit of Redcoats pub restaurant on Stevenage Road (location - https://w3w.co/fades.gold.paper) told us that those following this walk are welcome to park in the pub’s car park if they intend to take refreshments at the pub before or after their walk.

Alternatively, if you are not eating or drinking at the pub, there is another parking spot that involves a short detour to join the walk. We've placed a blue marker on the maps above and below showing the place where we parked in a nearby lane called Lower Titmore Green (location - https://w3w.co/skips.puts.horns). Be sure not to block any gates if you park down that lane.

If you use the alternative parking place start the walk by heading SE along Lower Titmore Green for 280m until you reach point 2 in the directions below, where you turn right, go through a gate, and pick up the route by turning left on Wymondley footpath 15.

  1. Hi - I think you might have loaded the wrong GPX & KML files for this route.
