Our Paths
New members of BADFA get sent a map of paths in the more local area that was drawn by Richard DeBoise especially for us. This map has been superseded by a new and much more detailed map of a larger area.

The New Map:

The BADFA area:

With the incorporation of the Watford Fieldpath Association, the BADFA area greatly increased.
It now is roughly bounded by Borehamwood, Harrow, Rickmansworth, Chenies, Chesham, Berkhamsted, Hemel Hempstead, St Albans, Radlett; but focuses mainly on Bushey, Aldenham, Watford, and Watford Rural 'parishes'

We hold a full set of definitive maps, but now a little out of date, for our area which may be consulted on request.

Thanks to the kindness of the County Council we hold air photos of nearly all our area for 1973, 1980 and 1990. These overlap to allow stereo viewing and may be seen on request.


BADFA is particularly anxious to receive feedback from the general public on what they want from the paths network and to hear what it is felt our priorities should be. We cannot undertake to do everything asked but we do undertake to consider all suggestions.

For path problems locally contact:

Chris Beney of BADFA (

Watch, watch. A tool that is worn on the wrist for timing. On social occasions, wearing a watch, usually means a strong sense of breitling replica time, rigorous style of work; and people who don't wear watches, or to ask others at the time people are always very much because it sniff at that time, the rolex replica concept is not strong. In formal social occasions, watches are often regarded as jewelry, usually only a ring can be worn for men, it is highly valued. Some people even stressed: "watches are not only men's jewelry, but also the rolex replica most important men's jewelry."

Address for letters for any of these officers is:
Rights of Way, County Hall, Hertford, SG13 8DN
They each have phone numbers but you can use 01992 555555

When contacting these officers BADFA would be pleased to be informed too.
A list of officers and their areas for the whole county used to be available on Herts County Council's rights of way web site. Unfortunately County don't always update it when staff change, and it seems to move, but you can contact us to see if we have more up to date information if you wish.

Recording Paths

BADFA is working on the process of getting the numerous unrecorded paths onto the definitive map, we have had much success but there is a long way to go.



Here is a view along Bushey 12, Finch Lane to Patchetts Green
Cleared by members Steve and Jennifer McCormick and Monica Shelton, this team is not currently
active, and it is not nearly as clear as this at the time of writing (late 2006)..

This is the 'Tessa Yates' path. A Greenway from Little Bushey Lane to the Watford Bypass. A new path provided as part of a deal involving BADFA, Open Spaces Society, British Horse Society, County Hall, Hertsmere Council and the then landowner Tessa Yates, sister of Mr Dalton, who used to farm around here.
