Stag Walkers, a Ramblers group based in Hertfordshire aimed primarily at younger people (20s and 30s and beyond!) are planning to walk the Icknield Way Path this year on a series of linear walks.

Part 3. Toddington to Warden Hill - 1st March (10 miles)
Part 4. Warden Hill to Letchworth - 21st March (13 miles)
Part 5. Letchworth to Royston - 5th April (16 miles)
Part 6. Royston to Great Chesterford - 17th May (13 miles)
Part 7. Great Chesterford to Dullingham - 27th June (19 miles)
Part 8. Dullingham to Kentford - 18th July (14.5 miles)
Part 9. Kentford to Icklingham - 23rd August (10.5 miles)

Although a useful site for accommodation and services along most long-distance footpaths, this site has repeatedly failed to remove misleading comments about the availability of our Guide Book from its website, marking it as out of print and leading to the unwary purchasing out of date versions from Amazon at inflated prices.  Use with care.
