A Borehamwood walk

Last weekend we went for an 12 mile walk along the ‘Timberland Trail’ runing from Borehamwood to the hamlet of Smallford. The walk should have been around 10 miles, but we took a few wrong turns in our search for a bus home.

Borehamwood was a right dump – totally faceless and modernised into blandness.It was a relief to get out of the town and into the countryside.

The walk ends at the closed station of Smallford, right next to Sleapshyde – a town that seems to have more road signs than inhabitants.
