This route runs from Rectory Lane
to Mimms Lane, in Shenley parish. This route is actually a
very old road [shown A to B on the sketch plan], and the bulk of the evidence relating to the
route was in the form of old maps and records. Unfortunately,
some local people, even those with horses, didn't want the route
to be reopened and entered objections, so a public inquiry had to
be held. The Inspector was impressed with the evidence and had
no hesitation in confirming the addition of the route to the map.
Although sometimes overgrown in places at its southern end, this path
offers a delightful change from the minor roads of Shenley.
Sketch plan of route
