Welcome to Howe Dell Stream Woods.
I want to...
This woodland reserve in south Hatfield lies between Woods Avenue and the railway line; access is via Howe Dell or Honeysuckle Gardens.
A meandering stream lies at the bottom of a deeply incised valley clothed in woodland comprising mature hornbeam, oak, and beech. The stream disappears into a large swallow hole at the north end. At times of high winter water, a lake forms in the reserve, only to disappear again as the water drains away into the chalk aquifers.
Level paths lead along both sides of the reserve, which is well known locally for its bluebells.
No parking available but the open space can be accessed herePublic Transport Information:
The Great North Way, a cycle route from Potters Bar to Letchworth, leads through the woods on the west side.
