Official (re)opening of Cheshunt 71 as a Bridleway

BHSThis route was recorded following a BHS request to the agent for the landowners. A Quarter Sessions order had been found diverting the bridleway, and this, coupled with other evidence, was submitted for a modification order application. However, the landowner acknowledged the evidence and entered into a deed of dedication so that the County Council could record the path using the quicker method. A reopening ceremony was held in 1995 to celebrate.
