Welwyn Garden City 100 walk legacy

Today Wednesday 29 May 2020 is the centenary of Welwyn Garden City. Sadly all celebrations are cancelled.

Ebenezer Howard launched Welwyn Garden City Limited on 29 April 1920 having successfully created nearby Letchworth Garden City.

The Lea Valley Walk first meets the garden city at Stanborough Park where the River Lea feeds the lakes.

Beyond Mill Green on the edge of Hatfield there is a return to Welwyn by way of Gipsy Lane, Hall Grove and Holwell Hyde.

Part of a just launched way marked circular Centenary Walk coincides with the LVW from Lemsford to Mill Green. This exciting new permanent route, which reduces road walking in the Hall Grove area, is likely to determine the line of LVW path east of Mill Green in future.

*** Mill Green’s mill has recommenced operations. Stoneground organic wholemeal flour can be ordered by email ([email protected]) and collected by appointment.
