What we're about

The Outdoor Adventure Club is a registered Community Interest Company (CIC) which aims to serve its members by offering a wide range of outdoor activities.

We believe that outdoor activity is of huge benefit to our community and society in general. It is our aim to promote community well-being and social cohesion while encouraging healthy lifestyles and environmental awareness.

By operating as a 'not for profit' organisation, under the supervision of the CIC Regulator, we feel we can promote and help provide access to a wide range of outdoor activities for our members while ensuring that any funds collected are used in the best interests of our community.

We welcome your support so please contact the organiser if you feel you can contribute any of your time and skills.

It's your group - let's make it great!!! https://img1.meetupstatic.com/img/smileys/smile.gif

HIKE with Martin: Ware, Hertford and Broxbourne Woods (14 m / 23 km)

Ware station


Join us for a medium fast horseshoe-shaped hike into the pretty woodlands of Hertfordshire.

We'll start at Ware, and see the New River, a 17th century engineering project that still takes water into North London. We'll follow part of the Roman road, Ermine Street, which was once London's main road north to Lincoln. We'll have lunch near the 'Sculpture Trail' in Broxbourne Woods and we'll end the hike in Hertford, a historic county town with a castle. Here there are various pubs where people can join me for refreshments if they wish.

Please bring a packed lunch and sufficient water.

You will need to be prepared for unavoidable, ankle deep mud. I recommend hiking boots and gaiters if you have them. You should be able to maintain a sustained pace of 3 mph (5 km/h) on flat firm ground.

Recommended train:

Buy a day return to Hertford from Liverpool St departing 9.42 am (it also stops in Hackney, Tottenham etc)

Get off at Ware 10.25

A note about the Outdoor Adventure Club:

The OAC is a 'not for profit' organisation under the supervision of the government appointed CIC Regulator. It is run entirely for the benefit for its members and organisers receive no financial gain for the time and skills they volunteer.

A contribution of £6 will be collected for this event because currently we need to raise money so we can develop a fund to pay for training and provide basic equipment for a leadership team. This team will need first aid skills and proper navigation training which is quite costly. On top of this we need to pay for insurance and accountancy fees. It all adds up and your contribution is greatly appreciated. However if you are unemployed or facing financial hardship please let us know and we are happy for you to join the event without making any financial contribution.
