Map showing Colney Heath 3
Annotated map reproduced courtesy of Googlemaps.
This bridleway starts as Sandridge 51 on Sandpit Lane. It runs generally south along 'North Drive', becoming Colney Heath 3 at the parish boundary, to Oaklands College then south-west along 'South Drive' to a junction with bridleway Colney Heath 61. Both Colney Heath 61 and Colney Heath 3 then run to the A1057 St Albans to Hatfield Road, near the junction with Hill End Lane.

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!
