|St Stephen 3 bridleway starts at a juntion with Burston Drive and heads generally northwestwards with a couple of kinks to reach the A405 North Orbital Road. The section of path created in 2020 and shown in orange runs northeastwards parallel to the A405 to a junction with Mayflower Road.
St Stephen 3A bridleway used to be the extension of bridleway 3, before the two parts were severed by the A405.
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!
|There is good user group support for the proposed new bridleway linking St Stephen 3 westwards to Lye Lane that has been proposed as part of a 2021 planning application.|
