Hiking River Gade Nature Reserve near Cassiobury Park Watford

I spent a few hours wandering and hiking the stunning River Gade and Nature Reserve. What a beautiful place to spend the day! The River Gade is a river running almost entirely though Hertfordshire. Its principal tributary is the River Bulbourne and eventually joins River Colne which I had the pleasure of hiking (River Colne video: https://youtu.be/4BAk9nVkOJQ) only a few weeks ago. The River Gade and its nature reserve where children can also spend time in the Cassiobury Park Watford is a must visit.
