St Albans Green Ring

The St Albans Green Ring will be a continuous walking and cycling route (approx. 9Km long) that will encircle the city centre. The route primarily enhances existing cycling and walking routes and extends from Townsend in the north to Fleetville in the east, Sopwell in the south and into Verulam Estate to the west (St Albans City Council)  The Section that passes through the Heath is shown by the broken white line below.
