This bridleway runs from Galley Lane to the Restricted Byway known as Arkley Lane and recorded as South Mimms 77 RB.

It enables a circular ride to be made using Galley Lane, Arkley Lane and another Restricted Byway in the area, Oaklands Lane.

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!
