 PG: OBJECTS: PROMOTION: Bushey 55  H25 

Bridleway 55 Bushey was recorded on the definitive map in October 2004 following use stretching back over many years.

This route, some 285 yds of grassy bridleway with a narrow hardened strip for walkers and cyclists, forms part of the London Orbital Bridleroute (H25). Evidence to demonstrate equestrian rights had been collected by the Patchetts Green Riding Club and the British Horse Society, and the application to record the route had been made by the Bushey and District Footpaths Association. All who used the path and completed the evidence form are thanked for playing their part in safeguarding the route for future riders.

This map shows the area of the safeguarded path. The bridleway runs just south of the allotments, from Homefield Road to Finch Lane.

Collecting evidence costs money in postage and copying. Help us do more, so paths can be protected!
