Pete's Walks - STevenage Outer Orbital Path (STOOP)

About My Walk

I walked the Stevenage Outer Orbital Path (or STOOP) in four days, spread over several weeks in August and September 2009. As usual, I did each walk 'both ways', walking about 7 miles in one direction before turning around and retracing my steps, so that at the end of the fourth walk I had completed the entire route in both directions.

Before I did the walk, someone showed me a copy of a map with the route of the STOOP marked on it, and I copied it by marking the route on my own maps with a highlighter pen. For the first two days that I walked the STOOP I just followed this route I'd marked on my maps, but for the last two days I tried to use the 'Route Directions' I'd printed off from the North Herts Ramblers Group web site.

Note: I have numbered each photograph (in red) and inserted the same number in the text to show where in the walk the photo was taken.
