Welcome to the St Albans and District Footpaths Society
Leading the way in sociable walking in and around the St Albans area since 1967
Welcome to our website. We hope you will like what you see and wish to join the Society or, if you are already a member, we hope you will find what you are looking for here.
The St Albans and District Footpaths Society is a Registered Charity which exists to keep footpaths open for everyone to use. We are a friendly group of people who enjoy exploring the beautiful countryside around us by walking the footpaths.
The Society depends entirely on volunteers and is run by its members for its members. All our walks are led by our own members. When you become a member we trust that you too will help with our work by volunteering to lead a walk, join the Work Group, take on an administrative role or help in checking footpaths
We are usually able to offer 2 walks on a Thursday, a short walk of 4 - 5.5 miles and a longer one of up to 7.5 miles. Our Thursday walks are mostly within Hertfordshire with the occasional walk in London to add variety to the programme. Sunday walks are longer, usually 8-10 miles with a break for a picnic lunch and sometimes tea at the end of the walk. We go further afield at times on a Sunday to explore the Bedfordshire, Essex or Buckinghamshire countryside.
