 PG: OBJECTS: PROMOTION: Shenley 17 and Ridge 37

This route runs from London Road, Shenley, to Crossoaks Lane. Riders can continue along Crossoaks Lane to Ridge.

Mind the Gap
The legal records of highways showed a gap between the end of the currently-recorded Crossoaks Lane in Ridge Parish and the bridleway in Shenley parish. If left as it was, there would have been a gap between the bridleway and Crossoaks Lane when the cut off took effect on 1 January 2026.

Following our Secretary's application, the gap was filled and now this route is no longer under threat.
