The Year 10 Hiking Club held its first walk of the new academic year on Saturday 19th November 2022.  12 students, accompanied by Mr Matthews and Mr Collins, walked the 11 mile “Abbey Line Trail”, between Watford Junction and St Albans, before returning on the Abbey Flyer.  The route of the walk is considerably more scenic than the railway, following the River Colne then the Ver, and passing through the Munden Estate, Frogmore Pits and the site of Sopwell Nunnery. 

Again, we were blessed with great weather, enabling our drone photographers, James Vandy 10N and now also Amit Patel 10R, to get some magnificent images.  James’ shots of the cathedral so impressed the cathedral administrators that they have requested the full resolution versions for their website!  The walk ended with free time in St Albans, allowing visits to the Christmas market, Town Hall museum and various fast food outlets! 

We’d highly recommend the walk if you’re looking to work off those Christmas mince pies - details can be found here: https://abbeylinecommunityrail.org.uk/days-out/abbey-trail/.
