Aldenham 12 is a long route from Aldenham village to Aldenham 22 (the water meadows track). Part is footpath, part is unrecorded bridleway and part is recorded bridleway.

The recorded bridleway runs between the golf course and Wall Hall itself, from Aldenham 22 to Aldenham 87. It had been recorded as a footpath, and there was a modification order application for an upgrade to bridleway status. As part of the changes at Wall Hall when it was converted from a university campus to housing, the county council agreed with the developer and its tenants to upgrade several routes including this one. The legal work was completed for this section in 2015.

The unrecorded bridleway is discussed on its own page.
