The Walk

On leaving the pub’s front door, cross the footbridge and go left along the river path.. Admire the pretty garden on the left but go past the first gated bridge and then cross back over at the second small bridge to go down a passage into Gentleman’s Row. Keep on the left side, following the houses, and as the way  narrows you will see the17th century Clarendon Cottage where the essayist and humorist Charles Lamb (1775-1834) lived with his mentally ill sister. Look for a discreet plaque on the wall - you may remember from school his “Dissertation Upon Roast Pig”?

The path leads to a junction at the main road by the Stag Pub. Turn right to go past the front of Trinity Church. Cross safely at the crossing (bearing to the right on the second part of the crossing). Head right for  20 yards or so - up the hill back towards Barnet - then take a left down the “New River” path, just before the road bridge. As you go along with the river on your right and “Town Park” on your left, you should see plenty ducks and and wildlife. As the Park ends, turn into the gate on your left to enter the park. Following the river path, you should have a very nice Willow Tree on your left and the golf course on your right. At the end, you need to bear left following the edge of the park back towards the town. DON’T go out through the big gates on your right, carry on to go into the car park at the end and out onto the road. You need to cross over and go down the passage behind Marks & Spencers (Safest to come out of the car park, go right to the crossing and then come back to the passage).

Go forward, through the shopping precinct to cross safely over Church Street into the Market Square. Head for the King’s Head pub in the left hand corner and go down the passage between the pub and St Andrew’s church. At the junction, go left into Holly Walk Stay on this path as it bends, ignoring all turnings until you get back to Gentleman’s Row. Go right, back to “New River”, cross the bridge and go right again, back to the Crown & Horseshoes pub.
