Remember to prepare properly before heading out on any type of walk or outdoor activity. Tell people where you are going and what time you are expected back. As Wainwright says “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing”.

This National Trust walk gives some of the best of the autumn colours in the less-trodden areas of the beautiful Ashridge Estate in Hertfordshire.

The Ashridge Estate has been enjoyed for centuries by everyone from pilgrims to picnickers. With its rich wildlife, diverse habitats, and varied history, there’s a lot here to discover.

Ashridge has a landscape for every season and is particularly spectacular in the autumn when turning beech, oak and lime leaves add their unique shades to the overall palette.

The colours of the trees and views of the gently rolling surrounding countryside make this a pre-winter walk to savour. You might catch glimpses of muntjac and fallow deer too.
