    River Ver, historic St Albans and the Roman town of Verulamium

    Next event: http://www.senderismoenlondres.co.uk/events.html

    Distance: 14.0 km (8.7 miles)

    Grading: Easy

    Rating: 2 out of 10

    Ascents: 100 m

    hiking time: About 5.5 to 6.5 hours of actual hiking

    We start our walk in Garston through Bricket Wood Common to Lord Knutsford’s park and manor at Munden, passing the impressively converted Netherwylde Farm, to go along the River Colne and River Ver to Moor Mill Inn.

    The walk then follows Ver Valley Walk arrows almost all day, up through woods and blackberries, beside lakes, along the River Ver to a mobile home park and on into Park Street.

    St Albans Abbey and its monastic buildings were completed with bricks from the Roman town (dismantled because it had become a hiding place for robber gangs).

    Clock Tower. Up the 93 steps of the tower’s spiral staircase, you will discover that each of its five floors reveals a snapshot of the tower’s varied historical past. Ticket for admission included.

    OS Maps: Explorers 173 (for the first 100m) & 182 or Landranger 166. Garston, map reference TQ 118 999, is in Hertfordshire, 2.5km north of Watford Junction.

    This walk, although not the most beautiful in the book, is surprisingly unspoilt by 21st century civilization, despite being close to London and squeezed between Watford and St Albans, the M1 and M25. It highlights come at the very end - the Roman remains at Verulamium, and the Cathedral city of St Albans.

    From Garston the walk is through Bricket Wood Common to Lord Knutsford’s park and manor at Munden, passing the impressively converted Netherwylde Farm, to go along the River Colne and River Ver to Moor Mill Inn, a possible early lunchtime stop.

    River Ver, historic St Albans and the Roman town of Verulamium.

    This walk, although not the most beautiful in the book, is surprisingly unspoilt by 21st century civilization, despite being close to London and squeezed between Watford and St Albans, the M1 and M25. It highlights come at the very end - the Roman remains at Verulamium, and the Cathedral city of St Albans.

    From Garston the walk is through Bricket Wood Common to Lord Knutsford’s park and manor at Munden, passing the impressively converted Netherwylde Farm, to go along the River Colne and River Ver to Moor Mill Inn, a possible early lunchtime stop.

    The walk then follows Ver Valley Walk arrows almost all day, up through woods and blackberries, beside lakes, along the River Ver to a mobile home park and on into Park Street, where you find your second option for lunch. Then it’s onwards, at times beside the River Ver and over water meadows.

    You then come to the Roman town of Verulamium (which derived its name from the river) on the outskirts of St Albans. While there is little left to see, there's a very pretty city park and a recommended museum.

    And so to St Albans Cathedral and its cloisters; and the historic town centre.

    Then either back into the Cathedral grounds, down to the Roman walls, to head for the Abbey Station, or through the old town to the City Station.

    Bricket Wood Common (near the start) can be very muddy in winter, and the water meadows (shortly after Park Street) can be waterlogged after periods of heavy rain.

  • Garston to St Albans. 20/12/10.
    amib, Dec-10

    Around 8.5 miles of walking in the south western corner of Hertfordshire; leaving Garston, the walker soon enters Bricket Wood Common, then passing by Munden House and Netherwylde Farm. The walker follows Ver Valley Walk arrows in the afternoon as the walk follows the Ver (from whence Verulamium got its name) and its water meadows into St Albans.

    Not a bad walk (though the snowy scenes helped!) considering its proximity to urban areas and motorways.
