Welcome to the West Herts Ramblers. We are a friendly group with members based mostly, but not exclusively, in the Hemel and St Albans Area. We are keen to encourage new members to join us and to spread the word on the benefits of walking. New members are welcome to join us for a couple of taster walks before committing to membership.
We have at least one walk every Sunday and one Tuesday a month ranging from 3 to 15 miles with most being between 5 and 10 miles. We walk in the beautiful countryside of Herts, Beds and Bucks with occasional forays further afield including London. There is also a programme of social events including pub meals, a quiz, talks and two long weekends away each year.
Midsummer Evening Walk
Join the midsummer evening walk on Friday 24th June. Starting from the Rose and Crown in Sandridge enjoy a summer evening walk followed by a drink or food in the 400 year old Sandridge village pub. See the events page for more details.
Pirton Walk 29th May
There may not be enough parking space at the sports ground in Pirton, which is the suggested parking space. However there is plenty of space in the village for road side parking nearby. We will gather at the entrance to the sports ground for the start of the walk.
Please note that the map reference for the sports ground stated in the emailed programme is incorrect, the correct reference is TL150315.

Next Walks Programme
It will soon be time start compiling our next walks programme and Mike our Walks Organiser will soon be sending out requests for walks. We are very grateful to all our existing leaders and hope that they will be able to provide walks. However we are always looking for new leaders and so the request will be sent to all members. If you've never lead a walk before why not try leading a short walk somewhere you know. There are some guidance notes here and you can always ask our experienced leaders for advice.
