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We hold a full set of definitive maps, but now a little out of date, for our area which may be consulted on request.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
12 Woodlands Road, BUSHEY, WD23 2LR
or contact County Council Officers:
To report physical path problems, signs, obstructions etc. you can use this link
And for issues on whether paths are public and precisely where they go etc. the main contact details (for Access and Definitive Map Teams) are on that web page.
When contacting these officers BADFA would be pleased to be informed too.
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.
