Bushey and District Footpaths Association

We are pleased to tell you that BADFA will be re-starting our walks on a trial basis.

The BADFA committee have decided that the manner in which the threat of Covid to the leaders and co-walkers is dealt with will be left to the wishes of the leader.

Consequently, for this particular walk, I must inform you of the following :

  • To come on the walk, you must email to book your place.  Places are limited to 10.  You will really only be welcome on the walk if you book by emailing beforehand..
  • I am asking you to only come on the walk if you have had 2 Covid vaccinations and are feeling well.
  • You must, at all times, be 1 metre away from your nearest walker if you are walking alongside them or 2 metres if you are in front/behind them.
  • Masks must be brought with you and put on when the leaders asks you to.
  • These requirements are not optional and if not obeyed will result in the walk being abandoned immediately.

Finally, the walks:

Previous Walks this year:

Sunday 27 th June at 11am.

Meet in The Copse, Bushey WD23 2FD.  There should be enough parking.

It is called Norman’s Brown walk and goes over the old Bushey Hall Golf Course using the official paths and then through North Bushey walking through fields near Bushey Mill.

It is 2.5 miles long and although shorter than usual be aware that you might not be as fit as you were 18 months ago! For obvious reasons we will not be having a picnic.
