Help connect Radlett

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 Radlett’s Slow Ways.

Latest Updates

It was a very pleasant walk, and soon after leaving the station at Radlett there are some fairly green public footpaths to end up a lovely section of agricultural land. I went the wrong direction a few times because I wasn't paying attention enough, but no massive detours :-)....

Photo 1 shows one signposted diversion past a weak bridge (LH cross)that was fenced off and past the overgrown map route (RH cross) to other signposts through a field. Photo 2 shows the mapped route on the East side of a fence to a blocked gate (red cross)....

After a steady uphill suburban road out of Radlett there is a gap in a hedge and then lovely Hertfordshire countryside. A quiet road takes you to a farm yard then along an old holloway with glimpses of rolling farmland through the trees. There is a path just past the Fox Pub (closed) through woodland to a quiet road that passes over the M1, then a subway to High Elms Lane along a cycle path....

Potential for some muddy sections (there was one short very muddy section with logs to help out when I walked) and a couple of flights of steps to contend with but otherwise it was a pleasant walk - particularly the Radlett end....

I gave up as there was no visible safe route across the main dual carriageway from the Potters Bar end. In my opinion this is a dangerous route....

Walked in two stages, St Albans to Smug Oak Lane; and Radlett to Smug Oak Lane. At Smug Oak Lane I took the bridle path to the A5183 and caught the bus. This is a very pleasant stretch, with a quiet lane and bridle ways, lots of well-cared-for horses and ponies in the fields alongside. Then at Smug Oak Lane I said ‘hello!’ to where I had left off in March, and caught the bus from the bus stop on the A5183 again....

Adam Marx

Walk this route

Very enjoyable route based on Starad One, it incorporates a diversion around a blocked footpath, and some other changes brought in from Starad Two where I think they improve the overall route. There are a couple of drop out points - Park Street station, and a useful bus stop where the route crosses the A5183 Radlett Road by Ventura Park. I do wonder if there is another, more direct, route option going West of Watling Street between Radlett and Smug Oak Lane....

It wasn’t as wet as when Strider reviewed it, but there was still some mud which is why I dropped a star. When it dries it will be a 5 star route....

This is the same path the previous reviewer, coming the other way, found blocked at the Harper Lane end, and like them I walked through the new housing estate to get to the rest of the route...

At this point, knowing that there is no footpath where the route currently suggests crossing the A41/M1, I diverted down Berrygrove Lane and then Otterspool Lane, then turning right up the bridleway to meet the route as shown at the footpath....

Leaving Radlett along a busy uphill winding road you reach a fenced-in path through a tree plantation. South out of Shenley there is a short (100m) section on the verge of a busy road, then left onto manicured industrial farmland with monogrammed JCB's and fields kilometers wide....

Secondly, the footpath off Harper Lane was blocked by fencing (reported on pathwatch, Oct 21) which meant a diversion through a new housing estate (which massively increased the amount of road walking)....
