Barnet Council is celebrating the start of National Walking Month (1st May) by releasing a guide to walks in the borough.

Introducing the guide which includes maps, sceduled walking groups and more, Councillor Barry Rawlings, Leader of Barnet Council says: ” From beautiful formal parks like Friary Park and the ancient woodlands of Hadley Wood and Cherry Tree Wood, to leafy river valley walks along the Dollis Valley Green Walk and wild landscapes at the Welsh Harp, the great outdoors in Barnet has plenty to offer.

“We have 36km of public rights of way across Barnet’s urban and rural environment, with over 42km of promoted routes that run through wonderful woodland, parks and open spaces, passing many cultural and historic hubs. Happy wandering!”
