Tewin - River Mimram - Park Wood - Queen Hoo Hall - Upper Green - Tewin

The village of Tewin was founded around 450AD. Its name comes from the Anglo-Saxon god of war (Tew) and Ing, meaning enclosure or meadow. The first church on the present site was built around 604AD in place of the temple of Tew. It was rebuilt in 1086 and was restored in 1903 by the Earl of Panshanger. There are many ancient buildings in the village, some of which you pass on the walk. Queen Hoo Hall was built in 1584, the Plume of Feathers around 1500 or earlier and the Rose and Crown around 1650. Walter Scott has Queen Hoo Hall as the setting for one of his lesser-known corroborated works.

Re: Step 5 It is no longer possible to walk through the water meadow at step 5 to Step 6. The entrance to the water meadow has been blocked up, a further gate 50 yds. Along the road into the water meadow is also locked and ordained with barbed wire. The owners clearly do not want anybody entering the water meadow. It is easy enough to walk along the main road (B1000)to step 6 although not a pleasant aspect of this lovely walk.
