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.
