Bridleway 34 Ridge runs from Bridleway 13 Ridge, at its junction with the old A6, to Blackhorse Lane.

This route was the old line of the road, before it was straightened when the M25 was built. The old section of road was fenced at each end when the new road opened, and as it was legally stopped up, the ownership reverted to the adjoining landowners. They were persuaded to rededicate, at bridleway status, in order to help with the safety of walkers, riders and cyclists on the H25 London Orbital Bridleroute.

The British Horse Society's local access officer arranged for the dedication of the bridleway, and the British Horse Society paid the legal costs. Our thanks go to the BHS!
