Social walks

Steve Kemp C1075, our Social Walk Secretary, organises a couple of shorter walks each year.

These walks are a great opportunity to catch up with the news, and everybody – friends and family – are welcome to join us.  If you have any ideas for future walks or are interested in leading a social walk please contact Steve.

The Autumn 2023 Social Walk: Saturday 9th September

The Centurions will hold their late summer social walk around the beautiful city of St. Albans on Saturday 9th September. The St. Albans Green Ring offers an opportunity to get away from the traffic onto a network of paths encircling the city centre.

The Ring is a continuous walking and cycling route covering 6.5 miles of open space, parks, nature reserves, disused railways and heritage sites. Paths are suitable for training shoes unless heavy rain has resulted in mud and puddles.

Non-Centurions, families and dogs are welcome. The pace will be leisurely, with short stops to explore the heritage of St. Albans. The walk will be led by Centurion Steve Kemp.

Where and Where to Meet

Meet at 10:30am, at the St. Albans Old Town Hall (now a museum), St. Peters Street AL1 3DH. The Old Town Hall is a large whole building.

Bring a snack for lunch or purchase along the way. The walk will conclude with refreshment back at the Old Town Hall.


Car parking is avaiable nearby at the Drovers Way Car Park AL3 5EB and Russell Avenue Car Park AL3 5EB. Further parking is available at St. Albans City railway station where payment is by phone or app.

St. Albans is served by two train stations. If coming into St. Albans City station, a ten minute walk along Victoria Street will bring you to the Old Town Hall. If coming into St. Albans Abbey station, a fifteen minute walk up Hollywell Hill and through the Market Place will bring you to the Old Town Hall. The Old Town Hall is a large whole building.
