This cycle ride starts from the historic village of Stansted Mountfitchet. From here the route heads west, into an attractive landscape of low hills, rich farmland, woods and river valleys - set on the borders of Hertfordshire and Essex. Explore leafy lanes leading to picturesque villages of plaster, timber, flint and thatch, such as Manuden, Braughing and much Hadham - the former country seat of the Bishops of London. Look out for the ancient art of pargetting (raised decorative plasterwork). Along this route you can travel back in time to a reconstructed motte and bailey castle, discover a working blacksmith's forge and visit the former home of sculptor Henry Moore.
