 PG: OBJECTS: PROMOTION: Bushey 72 Nightingale Lane

Nightingale Lane runs from Bournehall Lane to Bournehall Avenue, close to the Moatfield. It is a natural continuation route, shown in red, for riders using bridleway Bushey 55, shown in blue.

The Trust collected evidence of use of the path on horse and by bicycle, to add to the walker evidence previously submitted by the Bushey and District Footpaths Association. This led to an order being made to record the route as a bridleway, when was then confirmed. The time from application to confirmed order was 20 years and 22 days.
