Country paths in Wall Hall estate, Aldenham, get revamp
9:02am Monday 23rd December 2013 in News
An estate in Aldenham has dedicated 1.5 miles of new paths and upgraded 1.5 miles from footpath to bridleway, making them accessible on bicycle and horseback as well as on foot.
Wall Hall estate in Aldenham last week celebrated the launch of a new leaflet and interpretation boards for the new paths.
Wall Hall is part of Hertfordshire County Council’s Rural Estate and they have dedicated 1.5 miles of new paths and upgraded a further 1.5 miles from footpath to bridleway, The leaflet provides a guide and map for three circular routes within the estate which have been improved.
Interpretation boards have also been installed along the routes to provide information and draw attention to points of interest along the way.
The project is a partnership between Hertfordshire County Council and Hertsmere Borough Council and has involved local interest groups such as the Open Spaces Society, the local conservation and footpath societies, bridleways trusts and cycling groups.
Councillor Harvey Cohen, portfolio holder for planning and localism at Hertsmere Borough Council, said: "It’s wonderful to see the new routes completed as part of Hertsmere's original Greenways Strategy and I hope local people take advantage of them and explore the great outdoors.
"This is a prime example of what can be achieved on a previously developed green belt site."
