Help connect Markyate

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Markyate’s Slow Ways.

The M1 hums constantly and the low planes taking off from Luton airport roar overhead. I did hear some birdsong in the carpark outside Luton station. The walk into Luton is made pleasant by the use of a cut through and a park....

I didn't understand why there was an extra three sides of a square towards the end, where instead of continuing straight down Hicks Road, there was a left turn into Windmill Lane, I then walked straight past the right turn onto the footpath which has a way marker set back but no finger post so is easy to miss as you pass the entrance to a large house. Photographs: 1 Luton Station, 2 Luton Town Hall, 3 The Plough at Woodside, 4 Woodside, 5 Lower Woodside, 6, 7, 8 & 9 Woodside to Half Moon Lane, 10 dogs and obstructive gate on the pathway from Windmill Lane, 11 view of Markyate, 12 & 13 Markyate High Street...

Almost immediately out of Markyate you're in beautiful Hertfordshire countryside, going through and around arable fields, pasture, meadow, besides woods, through villages with scenic churches... It's mostly off-road, can be muddy in places but overall I really enjoyed this walk!...

Some of the sign posting around the Pumpkin Farm also needs improving. Otherwise, a lovely walk through rural pathways and fields....

It’s a splendid walk, about 90% off road, with a mix of paths, lanes and tracks. The route does a little detour to the pub through the churchyard, if you are not bothered then just walk straight through the churchyard....

There is a shady path next to Knot Wood before a gravel path through a golf course (not across the greens, no ball dodging). Across a road and through a gap in the hedge and into fields following the Chiltern Way, although the marked path has wandered, the route given here will guide you accurately....

This is a great route from the centre of Luton to Markyate. It is mostly off-road so wellies or boots are recommended. You can pick up the route at Farley Hill, Woodside or Slip End....
