Serving the people of Berkhamsted


There are a number of bridleways in and around Berkhamsted.

Pedestrians, cyclists and horse riders may use bridleways.

Cyclists are legally obliged to "Give way" to horses and pedestrians.

Horse drawn vehicles and motorised vehicles are not permitted on bridleways unless consent has been given by the landowner.

The record of public rights of way, known as The Definitive Map Statement, is maintained and updated by the County Council. Copies are sent to all local authorities, including Parish Councils and are available for public viewing. Pavements, towpaths and most housing access paths are not usually recorded as public rights of way.

Please contact the Town Council if you wish to view the definitive map statement for Berkhamsted public rights of way.

See the Dacorum Borough Council website for more information about bridleways and other public rights of way.
