Start Time
Meet at Harlow Town Railway Station

We'll set off by the River Stort to Roydon before heading north through Hertfordshire & the pretty valley of the River Ash. Perry Green is about half way, but for lunch we'll continue another mile to Green Tye which has a pub (Prince of Wales) & a village green. Returning, we'll pass through unspoilt countryside earmarked as a 'garden town' northern extension of Harlow - catch it before it's unspoilt no longer!

General Notes
We're heading off to Perry Green, home of the Henry Moore studio & gardens, or more correctly to the public rights of way that take us past some of the great sculptor's most monumental works. (It's £18 for an annual pass to go in - well worth it if you're at all local). From Harlow Town Station. By train: 0825 train from Liverpool Street, 0837 from Tottenham Hale, 0847 from Bishop's Stortford There's also a direct train from Stratford at 0830 to Harlow Town arriving just after 9 but leader will wait. By car: postcode is CM20 2JD. The station c.p costs £6.80 but there are cheaper alternatives nearby such as the Showground c.p on Fifth Avenue CM20 1FD which costs £1.25 Please bring your own food. There is no shop en route and the pub doesn't serve food, but its website states "you are very welcome to bring your own"
