A section of the Alban Way, a popular thoroughfare in St Albans, will be closed next week.

The stretch between the entrance to Morrisons car park and Sutton Road will be shut from Monday, October 2 for ten days.

This is so fencing between the Alban Way and a mobile home park can be replaced.

Signs have been placed near to the section to alert users of its closure.

The Alban Way is a trail of approximately 6.5 miles along the former railway line between St Albans and Hatfield, and forms part of Route 61 of the National Cycle Network.

Being ill sucks. No matter what’s got you down – the flu, a broken bone, diabetes, cancer – it’s a horrible place to be. Your body is weaker and less capable. The drugs you take mess with your mind and your moods and sometimes can make you feel even worse than when you started. Mental ill-health is no different. The brain is an organ, and like any organ, it doesn’t always function to the medical standard of “normal”. Mine certainly doesn’t.


Recently we, as a family (minus two of the kids), visited The Lodge RSPB reserve in Sandy, Bedfordshire. I had never been before, which is perhaps amiss of me as a birdwatcher as it is the headquarters of the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds or RSPB and only 45 minutes drive from home.
