A Guided Walk around St Albans Abbey Precincts – ‘In the footsteps of Medieval Gardeners’

June 25, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm


Meet at 2.00pm at The Old Fighting Cocks Inn Walk to be led by Sally Pearson

This walk will require imagination! Very little remains of the mediaeval monastery buildings in St Albans, let alone the garden areas which we know lay between them. But, as with other historic landscapes, by walking the ground, and hearing contemporary accounts of the features which were once there, it is possible to build a picture of what one of the most important monastic institutions in the country looked like, and maybe also gain some insight into the lives of the men who lived and worked at St Albans Abbey over five centuries ago.

The cost of the walk is £5.  Members are responsible for their own transport and refreshments. Reservation and payment for places on the three walks should be made to Mrs Liz Carlin,
using this form
Each applicant will receive detailed information on the location, timing and the precise meeting point for each walk, together with advice on suitable clothing and footwear and contact details of the Walk’s leader.
