  PG: OBJECTS: PROMOTION: Northaw 10 BW and 16 Byway

The Northaw 16 byway runs from a junction with Northaw Road West at TL 2807 0214 running generally southwards for approximately 340 metres to a junction with Northaw 10 at TL 2802 0181, and then continues as Northaw 10 BW generally south west for approximately 535 metres to a junction with the northern end of the Hook Cottages access road at TL 2771 0138 and continues generally south west for approximately 190 metres to a junction with Coopers Lane Road at TL 2759 0124.

A special acknowledgement is due to the North Mymms Riding Club for collecting user evidence which helped have the route recorded. We worked with the British Horse Society on the historical evidence and making the formal application to have the path investigated.

Once other paths are recorded or created, as appropriate, this path should form part of the Potters Bar Community Circuit.

1 Jan 15: See our Major Project page for a new path linking this one to Northaw 14.

Photographs (taken 3 Nov 08): The following photographs illustrate the route, starting from the Northaw Road West end.
