Elsenham launches full-colour Public Rights of Way map.
This weekend (1st August) every household in Elsenham will receive a copy of “The Footpaths of Elsenham” which contains a full-colour A3-size map, drawn to a scale of 1:20,000, based on Essex County Council’s Definitive Map of Public Rights of Way.
The whole guide folds down to a handy pocket size booklet, and includes information on Elsenham village and the rights & responsibilities of walking in the countryside. The new Countryside Code is also included.
For walkers who live outside of Elsenham copies are available free of charge from Elsenham Post Office, Country Newspapers, The Crown, Barker’s garage, Saffron Walden Tourist Information Office or by email request to
“The Footpaths of Elsenham” was made possible by grants from Elsenham Parish Council and the Parish Paths Partnership (P3), an initiative supported by Essex County Council.
The then Parish Council Chairman John Hurwitz applauded the production of the map in time for the summer holidays. “This is the result of many hours of effort by dedicated members of the Elsenham Footpaths Committee. They have given their time and skills to make footpaths & bridleways in Elsenham and the surrounding villages accessible for all to enjoy”.
