Saffron Walden and District Footpaths Association


The Saffron Walden and District Footpaths Association was formed in 1963 to encourage the use of footpaths in the area around Saffron Walden - approximately from Balsham to Stansted north and south, and from the Bumpsteads to Barley east and west. Membership is £5 per household per year. Newcomers and visitors are welcome on all our walks.

The times shown are for leaving Saffron Walden Common car park (TL 540 385 Sat. Nav. CB10 1LX). We leave promptly and share cars to the walk start points as parking is tight in places. Permission to park has been given where required.

Any questions? Please contact saffron-walden@hotmail.co.uk
