    I have just noticed this request for useage information on the Bryan Road to Grange Paddocks Bishops Stortford footpath.
    I have been a Town Councillor in Bishops Stortford for 30 years and currently an Honarary Alderman of East Herts, having lived in the town 69 years. I have, and continue to use this right of way for many years. It is very popular with dog walkers and people wishing to connect with the tarmac footpath adjacent to the River Stort and leading to the Town or linking over the new railway crossing bridge to Stansted Road and Hockerill. Footballers and parents use it to access the Grange Paddocks pitches and the swimming pool. I hope this remains as a public right of way to this unspoilt natural part of the town.

    I have been using the path between Bryan Road and the meads for many years. This is also a level short cut to the shops which is of benefit to those with walking difficulties.
