Directions and parking
Sandridge is about 2.5 miles north-east of St Albans along the B651. From St Albans, the Village Hall and its car park are on the left, off Hopkins Crescent. The Green Man and its car park are on the left, about 100 yards further on. If you are eating at The Green Man you may leave your car there. Please double-park with other Friday Folk members to save space.
Otherwise there is parking at Sandridge Village Hall, but this may be busy with footballers. If there is no space you may need to find on-street parking.
