Bushey and District Footpaths Association

Bushey And District Footpaths Association

Incorporating Watford Fieldpath Association (Founded 1898)

Registered charity No 1014684


BADFA formed in 1991 because some local people felt that the paths on or near their doorsteps were an interesting and valuable asset that might repay some extra involvement. In 2001 we incorporated the Watford Fieldpath Association, an organisation with similar aims which was founded in 1899 and which did some sterling work over the years, but which had become non-active. We get involved with bridleways cycleways and byways as well as footpaths.

We AIM To help provide paths, improve paths, and look after paths in an area centred on Bushey but extending widely around. To keep records of the paths and the flowers and animals near them To explore their history To help people understand what can and what can’t be done to paths And to encourage their use by organising walks and rides.

We get involved in all aspects of path work. We have drafted and pursued dedications of new paths, also of diversions where there is substantial public gain. We have held meetings, arranged walks, published maps, produced newsletters, put up signposts, done clearance and improvement work such as stile to gate, or gap, replacement.

Please Join us!

4 or 6 miles
Meeting point: Café at the Rickmansworth Aquadrome. Free Car Park on Frogmore Lane WD3 1NB.

Leader: Yvonne Riley
A peaceful walk around lakes created on what was once a busy gravel extraction site.
Mostly level ground and good paths or boardwalks. Some small slopes and muddy patches.
Refreshments and toilets at the café. We will do a loop of just under 4 miles round the lakes to come back to the café for a picnic or you may like to purchase food and drink. There is then an option to do a loop of approx. 2 miles along the Ebury Way and back along the canal towpath.

Note the walk and meeting point are different from the published walk programme due to unforeseen circumstances.
Please book in advance by replying to the email sent to members, or contacting mobile 07933 703077 by the end of the day prior to the walk. There is no limit to the number of walkers, but we’d like to plan in advance, know how many maps to print and be able to contact you in case of last-minute changes.
