Last year the BSDFA undertook a survey of the rights of way network in High Wych Parish on behalf of the Herts CC Rights of Way team. We identified that route finding was particularly difficult around Shingle Hall on the old Sawbridgeworth Airfield site which is now agricultural land. I’m pleased to report that Herts CC’s Countryside Management Service volunteers have recently been onsite to install new waymarkers and to clear vegetation. I walked the Airfield yesterday and they have done an excellent job.

If anyone is interested in exploring the old Airfield I’ve attached a map of the walk I did yesterday from Thorley Church. It has the added advantage of having the Queens Head PH conveniently positioned at the half way point. Please check opening times to avoid disappointment.

Thanks to the CMS volunteers and the landowner for opening up the paths.
