Bernards Heath is an attractive, family-friendly area of St Albans, with a strong community spirit.
The Heath is rich in history. It was a site of the Second Battle of St Albans in 1461, during the Wars of the Roses.
Sandridge Road runs through the centre of Bernards Heath with Victorian cottages at the town end, and larger, more modern properties towards Marshalswick Lane. There are two local convenience stores on Sandridge Road, and a parade of shops on Beech Road offers a wider range of options, including a Tesco Express, a laundrette and a newsagent, with a Shell petrol station next door.
The M25, M1 and A1(M) are all easily accessible by car, and the City station is a comfortable stroll from the Sandpit Lane side of Bernards Heath.
The Heath has a childrens playground, as well as an open field and wooded area which are popular with dog-walkers.
The Sandridge Road allotments are also well-utilised by locals.
Leisure facilities, including a pool and gym, are available at nearby Westminster Lodge, at the bottom of Holywell Hill.
FOOD AND DRINK
The Jolly Sailor and the King William IV pubs are at either end of Sandridge Road, and the Ancient Briton is on the corner of Beech Road and Harpenden Road. All three offer food.
