New Sopwell History Walks published

Sopwell History Walks Leaflets

The SRA has published a set of Sopwell History Walks to encourage visitors to explore Sopwell and learn a little about its history.

Many of you will be aware that, each year, we organise a walk around our area. These popular walks which explore our history and green spaces started several years ago, and there has always been a lot of interest in them. So, in our request for a grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund for the Sopwell Memories Project, we asked for some money to print walk leaflets. And these are the result!

The five short and fairly easy circular walks were beautifully produced by Diverse Print and Design, the company which also did our book Sopwell: a history and collection of memories. And our own Barry Bateman has drawn by hand a beautiful map in each, so you shouldn’t get lost.

The leaflets are free and available from the St Albans Tourist Information Centre.

In addition, you can download them in PDF format from the Sopwell Memories website.

If you haven’t explored Sopwell yet, now there is no excuse. Go walking!
