Danemead Nature Reserve is located in Broxbourne Woods, on Cock Lane, adjacent to the Scout Association campsite. There is parking for about 12 cars, though I've never seen more than 4 or 5 parked there. The car-park entrance is clearly marked with a large wooden signboard stating "Ermine Street, Martin's Green, Welcome". Ermine Street is named for the original Roman road which ran from London to York, and passed through here, so you'll be walking on ground trodden by Roman legions 2,000 years ago!
The nature reserve is quite simple, but is well laid out with information signs, boardwalks through marshy ground, and marked paths. You can walk out of the reserve through the kissing gates, into the surrounding woods, but be careful not to get lost as these woods are extensive. During wet weather, such as we encountered this week, some of the paths are muddy, especially near the kissing gates, so wear suitable footwear. There are a few clearings, but most of the walk is through the woods. You'll probably see piles of corded logs, stacked to provide shelter for woodland wildlife, and you might also see or hear muntjac deer, which are common in this area.
The car-park is adjacent the road, but there are no dwellings nearby, so do not leave anything on display inside the car, while you're away. We've parked there many times though, and have never had a problem. There are no toilets or refreshments, and the reserve is unmanned, apart fro occasional volunteer working parties.
If you drive any distance for your visit, it's probably also worth visiting the Sculpture Trail, which is located about a mile to the west.
