 PG: OBJECTS: PROMOTION: Shenley 10 Part Footpath, Part Bridleway

Current status: Bridleway; all of it is physically open and available for use by riders.

Strategic significance: This path forms part of two of the community circuits planned by the Trust and BHS for the area: the Aldenham Parish Ride and the Shenley Parish Ride.

As part of the Woodhall paths scheme, the owner of the Woodhall estate kindly dedicated the section of Shenley 10 that fell on his land. Hertsmere Borough Council owned the remainder of the route and were happy to have a bridleway, but were unable to make a dedication, so the County Council made a public path creation order to put the path in place. This was confirmed in December 2016, so completing the route.

Campaigning for new paths and safer road crossings costs money in postage and copying. Help us do more, so that more paths can be created!
