A walk through the history of Puckeridge.

This walk should take about half and hour. The route is completely on the level, and, apart from the narrowness of the pavement in one or two places, could easily be undertaken with a pushchair or wheelchair. Because of the narrowness of the High Street, the walk has been designed so that all the buildings are viewed from the opposite side of the street, from where they can be better appreciated.

An historical amble down Standon High Street

This walk is based on an account by the late Edna Holden, an acknowledged mine of Standon local history information, and gives some insight into the history of the buildings in Standon Village High Street. It has been somewhat abbreviated, and some new information which has come to light has been added where appropriate. It is a brief survey of what can be seen today.

Distance and time taken: Just about a mile, and as long as you like!

Standon Churchyard through the seasons.

The churchyard of St. Mary's Standon has a very fine selection of our native wild flowers, as well as quite a few introductions! A consequence of the rich and varied plant life is that it also supports a large number of birds, mammals, insects and other animals. This walk will lead you around the churchyard and provide a flavour of the views to be enjoyed in every season.

An Aeronautical Walk from Colliers End

Distance and time needed: 51⁄2 miles, approximately 23⁄4 hours

Over Gatesbury Way

Gatesbury is the site of an Iron Age earthwork (marked on Ordnance Survey maps), and the area nearby was one of the most important trading settlements in southern England in the 1st century BC. The Roman town of Braughing which stretched from Wickham Hill across Ermine Street and down to Puckeridge was second only to Verulamium in St. Albans. The area was alive with activity for many centuries, so keep your eyes open as you walk.

This walk goes outside the Parish but it gives you an excellent view of Puckeridge across open countryside. It uses several paths which are not included in the other walks.

Distance and time needed: 31⁄2 miles, approximately 13⁄4 hours

Distance and time needed: 31⁄2 miles, approximately 13⁄4 hours
