There are lots and lots of great social groups to explore in St Albans and Harpenden. One you might want to investigate is the St. Albans’ Adventure Group. They aim to get out and about and enjoy the great outdoors at the same time as making new friends with similar interests.

Members of the St Albans’ Adventure Group take part in all kinds of outdoor activities including; hill and mountain walking, cycling, skiing, camping, orienteering, climbing, rambling and canoeing. They organise weekends away to all parts of the country and sometimes abroad on a regular basis. 

They also get together to organise indoor events and social evenings such as talks, slide shows, theatre trips, Pub evenings, quizzes and games.

Coming up on Sunday 7th October 2018 is an all-day walk from Burnham Green. The full days walk starts at the White Horse pub at Burnham Green where people will meet outside the pub at 9.45am to allow a sharp 10.00am start, the White Horse put is at, 1, White Horse Lane, Burnham Green. 

On the walk, you will pass through Datchworth and Bramfield before following the footpath near the River Mimram to Digswell before heading back to Burnham Green for a well-earned drink back at the White Horse Pub. The walk is on good footpaths through open country and woods so there is nowhere to stop so bring a packed lunch.

Formerly known as the St. Albans and District Local YHA Group, the St. Albans’ Adventure Group has been active since 1949. They are a very friendly and sociable club for people interested in outdoor activities. They have around 40 members with wide-ranging interests including walking, cycling, climbing, skiing and photography to name just a few. The group is run by a committee elected in October each year so if you want to get involved get on down to a regular meeting at the United Reform Church Hall, Homewood Road, St Albans AL1 4BH as new members are always welcome.
