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We hold a full set of definitive maps, but now a little out of date, for our area which may be consulted on request.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

Definitive Map Team leader: Rosalinde Emrys-Roberts
Address for letters for any of these officers is:
Rights of Way,
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.
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.
