Map showing St Stephen 5 bridleway
Annotated map reproduced courtesy of Googlemaps.
This path runs from Radlett Road, Colney Street (part of Watling Street), towards and then parallel to the railway line to a junction with St Stephen 73, over the railway bridge to a junction with bridleway St Stephen 13, then back the other side of the railway before turning generally south eastwards to meet Harper Lane. Only the portion carrying the bridleway over the railway bridge is part of the H25.

This bridleway also has junctions with St Stephen 92 which leads to another point on St Stephen 13, and with St Stephen 93 which leads to the Pegasus crossing on Harper Lane.

NOTE: The bridge carrying St Stephen 5 over the railway line is currently closed for safety work. The County Council advises that it should be fully repaired by April 2021.
