This bridleroute, shown right in dark blue, was dedicated by the Woodland Trust to form part of the H25 London Orbital Bridleroute. Neighbouring parts of the H25 are shown in pale blue.

We need a volunteer to photograph this route for the 2021 Access and Riding Rights of Way Survey. It's easy - just take photographs (safely) when you use the path. Find out more!
