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.
Christmas Walk and Lunch
This years walk and Christmas Lunch will be at the Little Hay Golf Complex on Sunday 4th December, see the Events Page for more details. Completed booking slips and payment should be returned by the 5th November.
Calling all Walk Leaders
The closing date for submission of walks for the 2017 February to July 2017 programme is the 4th December. If you have a walk early submission is always appreciated, as are new walk leaders. Click here to check the dates for which we need walks.
Why have the Recent Walks maps changed?
Unfortunately Bing maps have withdrawn the facility that allowed us to show our recent walks on an OS map. So we've changed to Google maps instead which don't show as much detail. However Ramblers Web (who host our site) are working on a new feature which will allows to use OpenStreetMap maps instead and we'll be using this once it's released.
Changes to the walks on Sunday 27th November and 29th January
Follow the sad passing of Norman Jones the walk on the 27th November will now be led by Anne Robinson and walk on the 29th January by Richard Tassell. The 27th of November walk will be shorter than stated in the original programme but has the same start point. The distance and start point of the 29th of January walk are unchanged.
