Join us at 10.30 on Wednesday 20th April for a guided walk at Heartwood, St Albans.
Heartwood is a vast new forest of more than half a million trees, pockets of ancient woodland, wildflower meadows and fantastic wildlife spotting. We have a special opportunity to be guided around the woods by Woodland Trust volunteers and we will have a bring-your-own Pesach picnic together part way through the walk, finishing with a hopeful sighting of the bluebells in flower.
We will meet at the car park, walk into Sandridge Village, through the orchard, around the arboretum and then head for the picnic table which is a walk of just over 3 miles. After lunch we will head back to the carpark via one of the bluebell woods – just under 1 mile getting back about 1.30pm.
The car park entrance is off the B651, just north of Sandridge. Nearest postcode: AL3 6JB.
Please note, there are no toilets on site, the nearest are about an 8 minute walk from the car park.
This walk is limited to 20 people so please book (via PayPal below) early and by 7th April latest for a place.
It takes around £200,000 a year to maintain Heartwood Forest, so a suggested donation to join this walk is £5 per person (which we will pass on to the Woodland Trust).
