This path runs from the reservoir path (Bushey 53 and Aldenham 78) generally northwards across the runway of the airfield, until it crosses the parish boundary and becomes recorded as footpath Aldenham 14 which leads to the pond in Letchmore Heath.

Although the British Horse Society thinks that Aldenham 14 is incorrectly recorded as footpath as it forms part of the ancient Bride Street, the Aldenham part of the route cannot be recommended for use on horseback until either enough evidence is collected to prove its status, or the landowner agrees to its use. There are some nice views from the northern end of the path.

Take great care when crossing the airfield. Do not endanger yourself or aircraft.

At the time of the BHS 2021 Access Survey (7 Sep 21), no gates were across the path and there were waymark arrows at each end.
