Tracing the routes of local footpaths c. 1900

The following images are of a booklet containing a map of public footpaths in the area produced around about 1900 by "The Middlesex, Herts And Bucks Committee Of The Commons Preservation Society".

The booklet containing the maps was published in order to encourage walkers to report where paths were blocked or where routes had been changed.

The booklet has been lent to this site by local historian, Peter Miller. We are grateful for Peter's continued generosity in sharing items from his local history collection so that more people can enjoy delving into the area's past.

Public footpaths are marked on the map with red lines. Disputed or doubted paths are marked with red dotted lines. Paths marked with a cross and four dots are, according to the text on the map owned by "the Great Northern Railway and are closed once in every year".

To view the maps in more detail, click on any of the images below to reveal a larger version then click again to zoom in further.
