Re: Cycling-walking, Towpaths, Bridges in Ware-Hertford

Although the towpath from the Gauge House towards Hartham is a sealed tarmac surface, from memory the stretch from Ware lock to the Gauge House was only ever a gravel surface. I remember is being resurfaced (of sorts) about 15 years ago when I used to cycle to work in Mead Lane. The path was built u...

Re: Bit of fun

You're right - it is the Roebuck Hotel. Just looked on Google street view. If you follow up Baldock Street/Wadesmill road, the images are dated June 2017 and show the nearly completed care home.

Re: Off roading in Ware

No money to fix potholes, yet the Highways Authority can find over 20 million quid to 'improve' the junctions on the A602.
