Map showing Ridge 6 bridleway
Annotated map reproduced courtesy of Googlemaps.
The Ridge 6 bridleway starts at Coursers Lane opposite bridleway Ridge 40, has a junction with the bridleway (Ridge 32) that leads to Colney Heath common, and ends at byway Colney Heath 52 at the parish boundary.

Colney Heath 52 is a byway that comes out on the A414. Although it is opposite Colney Heath 60 (Woodrake Lane), there is no suitable crossing and cannot be recommended for equestrians.

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!
